Dutch wanted to learn to knit and as luck would have it, Marie was on hand to give her a one on one lesson.
Marie shows Dutch how to begin, by making the cast on loop
Now the loop is done....
......Slide it onto your needle ...
...and pull tight
The pout of frustration
Casting on more stitches
Insert the needle front to back through the loop
Showing how it's done, Maire teaching by example
Cross the needles
Round the back and through the middle
Bring the needle through the hole, slip the stitch off and...
...the joy of becoming a knitter
A successful cast on edge
Dutch was a fast learner, maybe the awesome teacher had something to do with it!!
