The girls and I found a couple of really cool websites that I thought I'd share.
We're learning how to knit. Well, actually Judith and Rebekah are already pretty good at it, but Melody and Eliza are learning and I'm re-learning (my Mémère Bert taught me to cast on, knit, and purl, but I'd forgotten how - it's been so long). This website has been so helpful! It includes free video instruction for both English style and Continental style. My mem taught me English style, and when I first tried Continental, I made a big mess. But there was a scene in an indie movie we watched the other night (review coming soon) that included a woman knitting Continental style and it finally clicked. I tried it again the next morning and took off. It's faster than English, so I've been using it for my current, very basic, project with its Christmas deadline.
