 Shocked my fella asked me to teach him how to knit Shocked
imagine my suprise when my faboo boy answered "why don't you give me some cheap ass acrylic and some needles and show me how to knit" to my query about how we should spend our evening!

he's 8" into a garter stitch scarf looking thing, and i couldn't be more thrilled. 

then i realised crap...two yarn junkies in the same house???  bring on the ramen noodles baby, cause mama (and now papa!) need them a Rowan fix!

*modified for spelling...and there's prolly still a bunch o' mess ups yet Embarrassed

My husband's mom taught him how to knit, cross stitch etc when he was 8-9. She always wanted a well rounded boy, I guess.

That's awesome that you taught him. My dh wouldn't touch needles now to save his life.

That's awesome. I think I'm gonna teach my sons how to knit. I read where in Waldorf school they teach knitting, crochet, etc. to all the kids. Guess the fine motor skills/concentration practice is really good for them!

It's true, they do teach you to knit and crochet at waldorf schools.. two of my friends went to one and learned to knit and crochet. SOOOO not fair.

My son who will start kindergarten next year has serious "ants in the pants" issues. I figure if we spend the summer knitting, it might help him. Otherwise the teacher is gonna have me on speed-dial!

Off the subject a smidge, but I know I am in the minority when I say that I like Ramen.  Mr. Boo hates it and has banned it from the house.  Even the smell gets to him. 

Best of luck with two yarn junkies in the house.  I think we need a Craftster telethon that uses it proceeds to help us craftster when we are down and out unable to buy our all important craft supplies.  Oh the humanity!!!!!  Roll Eyes

this is too funny, because just yesterday my bf asked me to knit him a beer cozy for his guiness with a shamrock on it (he's irish)....and then after thinking about it he goes "why don't you just teach me?"

It's a good thing we were on the phone because i think my eyes bugged out of my head Smiley

My fianc told me that next year, once we're married and living together, he'd like me to teach him how to knit.  I was excited but also a little afraid - what if he gets better at it than me?  I don't know if I'd like the competition.  Nevertheless, I will teach him because it'll be fun. Actually, he knows the basics already - my grandma taught us both at the same time but I was the only one who stuck with it.

I know exactly how excited you feel!
My boyfriend has recently let me know that he'd like to learn how to knit and crochet--partly, I suspect, so he wont be stuck with making the yarn balls! I cant wait to teach him. I told him that he could make something for his mom and send it off to her while we are away at uni--it would thrill her to no end! It may even get her interested in learning!
