Learning to Knit- At Any Age!

Wow! I'm loving the responses to the current contest! If you haven't taken the time yet, do try to steal a few moments of blogtime to read through some of the comments where knitters from far and wide tell when they learned to knit. It's a quaint way to get to know one another just a little bit better- as far as our common knitterly interests are concerned anyway.

Some of you learned to knit at a pretty young age (some even learned in school- wish my school had taught that!) Some of you learned to knit in your empty nest years (just in time to knit for grandbabies!) And so many more of you learned to knit somewhere in between...

Keep the responses coming in- they are so fun to read! I haven't had time to respond to too many of the comments, but I have stopped by several new (to me) and enjoyable blogs, and I would encourage you all to do the same. This is such a great community and I'm loving being a part of it, I hope you are too!
Happy knitting-

Amazing all the people who learned when they were kids! My mom tried to teach me when I was around 9 or 10, but I wasn't coordinated enough or something. I was able to crochet a bit, but she got me into cross stitch for a little while. yeesh! Unicorns and stuff. hehe

I wish they'd taught knitting in my school, too. I bet I would have felt more friendly towards math if I'd know about it's applications in knitting.

What's going on with the "test" pages. Are there gremlins playing havoc with you?
