Spreading the gospel of knitting

I went back to my hometown to see my best friend this weekend and she has seen some of my knitting. She loves the lace up gloves I made her that I found on Spiral's blog and the hats I made for her kids. So she started asking me how to knit. I was very excited that she asked and I showed her how. Here's a pic of her first attempt to do a slipknot.

She got upset with me because she's not wearing makeup in this picture. Also, I converted a crocheter. She looks very excited in this picture.

Here's a picture of the latest hat that I did for the excited friend (which she says that she finds knitting soothing). I don't usually like Yarn Bee brand yarn, but this one is cool looking. The yarn is called Mosaic and the color is called blue lagoon. You can't see the shiny, metallic threading spun into it, but it's there and if anyone gets a chance to look at it, they should. Photobucket's being a pain, therefore the picture's not doing the hat any justice.

It's always fun to teach newbies to knit. It's fun and it's a binding experience. Yay for new knitters!

Love the hat too.

Great enough to add new knitters to the list, but to convert a crocheter is well, something wonderful.
Now, of course I also crochet, but I'm talking about the ones that won't come to the other (knit) side no matter what. Converting this group is extremely gratifying. Wahahaha. Good on you.

Yarn Bee? I kinda like the colorway. Good Job bringing her over to the darkside :-)

The gift of knitting, and converting your best friends is great. Now you have someone who not only understands you she can now understand your passions.
