did I really say that?!?
I think to a beginner it is important not to give up - to not pull it out, just keep going and revel in your achievement.
I just came across the October issue of Notebook Magazine - there is a great article about my teaching by Selina Altomonte.
What caught my eye as I had my first flick through the magazine was the gorgeous bow scarf she is photographed wearing - it was her, I think, second time around with the pattern and what a great job she did.
I think that perhaps crochet and granny squares are winning the craft time in her house though!!!!
note to add sadly this happened yesterday so it is all not longer.....
