a girl i know at school learned how to knit a little over a year ago, and one day at school she pulled out her knitting and we started talking a bit about it. and i showed her pictures of the afghan i've been working on, and she looked at me with this totally "in awe" look on her face and said, "wait, can you like, purl
and i looked at her and said, "yeah, of course."
and she started asking me all these questions about knitting and i realized that she only knew how to do a knit stitch. and i explained how all the other cool stitch patterns were just a combination of knit and purl and after i got done rambling she just looked at me and said, "wow, you know so much."
it made me feel so smart for a few minutes because compared to most of you other KHers, i know so little! and i'm still trying to soak up as much knitting knowlege as possible so it made me really happy to hear her say that.
