Old for my age.
Created By: Marissa WIlliams

I learned how to knit from a friend's mom when I was eleven, and promptly forgot how to as soon as I left their house. A year later, a teacher that worked at my school offered to teach a group of kids to knit. It ended up being 7 or 8 of us, huddled around her desk, talking and laughing once a week, trying to figure out how to turn our yarn into a scarf. When the group ended a few months later, I had created two scarves and fell completely in love with knitting.

Many of my friends, teachers, and family members teased me about being old for my age. My grandmother absolutely loved that I knit, and promptly gave me a giant bag filled with yarn that she had.

Now, two years later, I am not the only that nows how to knit. Over time, most of my friends wanted to learn how to knit. Although they didn't stick with it, they are not allowed to tease me anymore.
