I am SO PROUD! My friend finished her first knitted project!
I've been teaching a friend how to knit. She is left-handed and wanted to learn the typical 'right-handed' way. She learned how without any problems- got her tension down really quickly and in no time learned to recognize the purl and knit stitches.
We saw some scarves knitted in the basket weave stitch pattern (blocks of knit and purl and the scarf is reversible as a result) I am happy to report that she just finished her first scarf. It's a wonderful thick wool yarn from Turkey that we found in the Yarn Market here in Seoul. She knitted it in a basket weave pattern and it was a good way to follow a pattern and to learn to recognize 'purl and knit' stitches when you see them.
She has already started her next scarf and has already knitted about 9 inches on this new scarf. I think that she is already hooked! YEAH!!
