CRAFTY 30 DAY BLOGGING CHALLENGE DAY#28
Day #28 – Ever taught anyone to knit or crochet?
As Yoda would say ‘Pass on what you have learned!’
Yes, I have taught people to knit and crochet with varying degrees of success (and pain). I have found though that if they aren’t interested in looking up knitting or crochet patterns and ideas for themselves, then they will invariably fail. (Yes, blame it on the students not the teacher).
It is so difficult to try to teach someone how to knit when they don’t like the look of what they have done, when something is wonky and it’s not perfect first time round. You say to them that it takes time and experimentation on their part as well as motivation to stick with it and suddenly they’ve had enough!
I have tried to teach friends and my mother how to crochet. None of them do it still!
But I will never give up! 🙂
