...to learn something new!
Had a friend come over today
for her first knitting lesson.
Since I myself am a visual learner,
I made three swatches...
one with the knit stitch (garter),
one with knit and purl stitches (stockinette),
and one with ribbing (alternating knit & purl),
then showed her on each swatch
how to knit and/or purl and
had her practice on each swatch.
Since she is a Minnesota Vikings fan
I used yarns with their colors. :*)
I hope she will muster up enough stubbornness
to push through the frustration/learning phase
and then sail into the fun/"I've got it now" phase!
Learning something new is always difficult at first,
and then becomes easy.
