Yep, it's true! I've always wanted to learn, and even tryed when I was little, but wanted to try again. I bought yarn and needles at the supermarket while at the farmhouse this weekend, and sat down with Ch. After about 10 minutes of showing me the same simple stitch again and again, I finally got it. Then after about 15 rows of really ugly mistakes, my doll scarf is finally looking kinda like a scarf. I feel like such an old lady in the evenings, I go home and knit, and go to bed early! I am an old lady!
