I am excited to say that two of my co-workers have seen me knitting on my lunch break and have asked me to teach them to knit. I agreed, as I always enjoy bringing more people into the fold.
I am thinking about how to approach this--I am going to bring some of my needles and yarn for them to borrow so they can see if they really want to do this without buying their own supplies. But I am mulling some other things around in my brain, and I'd love to get your input.
I am trying to decide what needle size to start them out on--I was thinking 8s or 9s--I don't want them to start with anything too small, but also I think larger ones might be awkward as well.
Also, I am thinking about whether or not to start out by casting on for them, teaching them knit and purl and then going back and teaching them to cast on. It seemed to me when I learned to knit that casting on was the hardest part, and I don't want them to get discouraged.
What do you all think?
