My Girl Can KNIT!

Can you tell I’m excited / proud? TP has been trying for ages to knit, but would get really frustrated and give up quickly. After a trip the other day to the LYS, where she found this book she has been really keen to give it another go, so today we sat down and gave it a go. After I cast on for her and did the first row, I sat behind her just to guide things along. The needles are far too long for her, but she did it. I soon discovered that she prefers the continental style of knitting, meaning she holds the yarn in her right hand, so I had to think hard about which way she should be putting the yarn over the needle, but I think we got it right.
