Men Knit

A co-worker asked me to show him how to knit. He wanted to knit his daughter a throw ... for her birthday in February ... I laughed. I said I couldn't finish a blanket by then, however, I would gladly teach him to knit.

So I got cheapo needles and yarn and off we went.


He actually did quite well. He was even long-tail casting on ... I told him that was for learning later, but he was determined. He learned the knit stitch. Later we'll do purl, and casting off.

Stay tuned!

That's awesome ... "he wants to knit his daughter a throw" ... completely awesome.

Love it! He looks so enthusiastic in that picture, too. You should hint to him that a nice cosy garter stitch scarf would be perfect for February :)
