    THAT is truly amazing! My first knitting project was a bit more sketchy looking!
    Sounds like a great time! Go Jeremy~


    Yay for new knitters! And snow! And mittens!


    That's quite a first project! Way to go all three of you!


    Cool! Nice job!

    Very impressive! Knitting the miniature stuff is more difficult than the full size.


    Way cool! I love 'snowmaggedon'! And though I am not a big vodka drinker, that ginger vodka looks really intriguing...

    I'm supposed to be teaching two adults and a 5-year-old to knit after the first of the year.
    I don't think we'll start with mittens but it will be fun to see who picks it up the quickest. I'm guessing the little girl.


    Thanks for the wonderful evening Norma!

    I dreamt about knitting all night last night, lol, so I think I'm going to have to knit another mini-mitten soon.

    And we'll send pictures when Jeremy finishes the scarf ;-) He's determined to finish a mitten at some point, too!


    I used to think everyone could learn to knit but I did encounter one student that was unteachable and that shocked me. I'm glad you had success with Ally. AS for Jeremy, you didn't spike the eggnog, did you?
    Me, I'm still eyeing that ginger vodka.

    Cute! I keep thinking about making mini sweater and mitten ornaments. But I don't know what I'd do with them. I suppose they'd make cute additions to Christmas giftwrapping, but since I only buy prezzies for my mom and dad (and usually mail order), I guess that wouldn't work out so well.

    I actually did get out some Christmas decorations this year for the first time in about 5 years. Only because I want to get rid of most of it, and I figured I'd put out a little bit, and give away the rest. Hence getting rid of two huge boxes of crap from the basement.


    Did you talk them into learning to knit before or after you wrapped the Swallowtail around Ally? :D

    Barbara M.

    Woo-hoo! You must be a damn good knitting teacher, Norma.... that is a very impressive first project! Wish you'd been around when I taught my daughter. She's a fine knitter, and even teaches knitting herself now, but teaching a teenager you are related to is a tough thing (especially when she's left-handed and strong-willed, and you are just an ordinary, tired, righ-handed Mom!)

    Merry Christmas!


    Tell Jeremy to hang in there... it always takes me a while too. Especially with manual/motor skills. It took me over a year to learn to ride a bike. (Stop snickering. I was seven at the time.)


    That is just about the cutest thing I've seen in a long time. They should put that in a Christmas card. Adorable. This makes me smile.


    Tell Aly she ROCKS!! (and Jeremy will too!)

    Glad you liked your Chanukah gift hunny :)


    Teaching motivated new knitters is one of the best things ever!


    woot! fresh meat! i mean, new knitters!

    i taught my 14 yo son to knit (again) and took to it so well, i found him knitting and reading. now if we can avoid those pesky yarnovers (he started with 20 stitches. he's got 33, and i've actually knit him down to 23, lol)
