*If you are looking for how to knit instructions, this is a pretty good site.
*Jean, et al...I've been asked to teach a few young (okay, younger than me) people how to knit. One is as dyslexic as I am and so I'm sure we'll do just fine but the other two may really pay attention to what I say or how I tell them how to do things. I don't want to pass on any bad habits. Any teaching suggestions or aids that you can recommend? (My grandmother watched me crochet...self taught...and told me, "That hook's not a shovel, you know!" I have found my i ownway, so to speak.)
*This is the NEATEST site. Go here and click on Animated Knitting techniques. I love this site!!
*Thanks Jean...will wonders ever cease! That's exactly what I needed both to be sure I'm doing it correctly and to give them a refresher.
