This is only her second FO, and I just taught her the basics-cast on, knit, purl, bind off. She learned to do the increases and decreases for this scarf on her own (with help from the videos here, I might add). Now she is starting out with cables. I only taught her how to knit a month ago! Pretty soon, I'm going to be asking her
Can you guess from this post how thrilled I am about this? I love having another knitter at work to hang out at lunch with.
