I am not a teen
so you may not want to hear from me
but my 2 Older Daughters seem to like knitting
14 Adg
and
11 bug

the baby does, but she is easily frustrated and is STILL working on her first Hat
gets maybe 15-20 stitches done each time she picks it up
should fit her OWN daughter quite well at this rate

but my 14 and 1 yo are both tallented and anjoy it
11yo has a couple bad habits (yanking the needles apart before knitting each new stitch for starters)
but they both make nice things

MY 10 yo has knitted for about 2 years. She just finshed her second Tychus hat and another Booga bag to gift to friends and relatives. She also just casted on for her first sweater. Dd is totally gitty at the fact she's creating what SHE wants to wear.

Happy knitting!

My son - 18 - asked me to teach him. Between 2 crazy schedules, he hasn't started yet, but he keeps saying he wants to. Does that count?

My 17yo DD knits. She has made gauntlets, scarves, a felted hat and other things. She's not a forum member, for which I am thankful.
