14. YouTube has taught me to knit

I could never learn to knit at all as a child, I had no one to teach me, I learned to crochet with a book and did that for years. Finally I approached a lady who I know that is a wonderful knitter and mentioned my desire to learn, finally, to knit. She told me it might be easier for me to learn Continential style since I had crocheted for 30 years and that I could find all I needed on YouTube. I told her I thought YouTube only had frat boys lighting their farts and such, but she opened me up to a great knitting resource and a few years ago I learned and it has become a passion for me.

Yes, and old dog, or middle-aged dog, can learn new tricks! My favorite sweaters are now ones I've made, and hand-knitted socks are just wonderful!
