J is an absolute natural at knitting. I showed her how to cast on a few times and then relaxed and drank my wine while she filled her needle with stitches. Then I showed her how to knit a few times and she did fine with that too. I'll link her to Knitting help to keep her going until we get together again. My only concernis that I knit English and feel badly for teaching the slow way. I think its so hard to switch that maybe people should learn Continental off the bat.
AND my shyest cat really liked her. He has good taste.
