oh rock on. i taught myself to knit, although i often have to ask the my lys lady a question. it's definitely a good feeling when you teach yourself stuff. people always look at me funny when i tell them i taught myself to knit.
but i am completely lacking in any knack to sew. i really needed someone to help me. for some reason it's always been hard for me. it took me forever to figure out how clothes are put together. luckily i had this fantastic costume prof. who finally made it all make sense. she was patient and was proud of me when i made even the smallest thing work. i'm am eternally greatful.
