My mom has, in the past, expressed an interest in knitting and has asked me on many occasions to teach her. Well, I'd try, but, she'd get frustrated and say maybe she'd try again some other time...lol...Anyway, now that I'm learning to crochet, my mom wants to pick it up again!
She used to crochet when she was younger so she feels more comfortable getting a refresher course in crochet than she does learning to knit...lol...
So, I was over there tonight and brought some yarn and my hooks and we sat there for a while making swatches. It was really nice, seriously. No one else in my family knits (my great grandma used to, but, she passed away in '90, when I was only 13) so I've never had anyone to knit with.
But, it looks like I have someone to crochet with! I gave her the ball of yarn I brought, and, let her keep one of my hooks until she gets her own set, so she can practice in the meantime.
I can't wait to take trips to my LYS with someone who will love the yarn as much as I do!
