That's so great!!!
One time when I was knitting at the doctor's office in the waiting room, a girl around 16 or so seemed interested in my knitting, then said something to the effect of, "I'd never be able to do something like that". I felt so bad
that I didn't have any knitting needles and yarn to show her how to do it and let her keep them. I should buy some needles and yarn for when I'm KIP and if somebody shows an interest, I can show them and let them take them home. Truly, we can all be "knitting ambassadors"!
