Also, there are lost of books out about me knititng. One that comes to mind that i saw in Barnes and Noble was "knititing with balls" but i don't know the author..
as a matter of fact, when I started knititng approx 4 mons ago my 11yr old nephew wanted me to show him.. and i did show him some of it unitl his DAD came in an implied that there was something wrong with kniting. .
so i told him later (without his dad present) if he wants to learn now or later. I would teach him
so Strike while the Iron is hot.. Go for it!!
