Shhh! Don't tell mom!
Created By: S Sarah

My mother is a FABULOUS knitter. She has done wonderful sweaters and other projects for our family for years. She makes her own patterns, designs and everything. And when my kids wear their sweaters to school they get oohs and ahhs from all the teachers!

But when she tried to teach me how to knit when I was younger - she got so frustrated with trying to teach me left-handed that she threw up her hands and considered me unteachable.

We'll I now its twenty year later and I kept looking at the yarn and the knitting needles in the stores with longing to learn myself. So I bought one set of number 8 needles and one hank of yarn and curled up about a month ago with some online step-by-step videos. And I made my first piece - a bag to keep my future knitting projects in. Then I found the Lion Brand Yarn website and got started looking for my next project!

I kept my self-taught lessons to myself until mom came to visit last week and then got my knitting out quietly after the kids went to bed. How surprised was she when she saw my work to say the least! She was impressed with my tension and overall motivation to learn in the first place.

Now my girls (ages 5 and 7) want to learn to knit too. And I'll try to be a bit more patient with them.
