I watched this clip on YouTube about a million times while rocking Sahara and about a million more times as I was trying to knit.... just absorbing it all. I started really sloppy and would get about 15 stitches on the needle and then, remove it and start again until it started feeling more natural. Also, at first I had to use my fingers to help it along, but that got better, too. Improvement was quite quick, so that was not frustrating and before long I was rocking right along. I even did some of it while rocking Sahara. As is the rule she awoke twice and had to be cuddled and rocked back out.... ya know, they seem to know when you are trying to accomplish something... Hehehe! As you can see above even "rocking right along" you don't get a lot for the work very quickly. BUT I do feel w~o~n~d~e~r~f~u~l just knowing that I FINALLY DID IT! I learned and will continue to play around with it and learn more. And a big thanks to http://www.youtube.com/ and http://www.cyberseams.com/ for having this stuff on the internet as tool for L~E~A~R~N~I~N~G ! If you have ever wanted to learn to knit, I encourage you to try it. For under $5 you can get a pair of needles and skein of yarn and the feeling of accomplishment is... PRICELESS ! I can't wait to teach my kids!
