I managed to recruit a knitter!

I had a friend who expressed an interest in knitting ever since seeing some of FOs (I think so anyway, heehee). I am just too thick-skinned(=shameless) I think. =P

So, last December when my sister came over to visit me, I sent her back to Singapore with a copy of Debbie Stoller's Stitch and Bitch(that's how I learnt to knit) to be mailed to my friend. It's almost 3 months later now and my friend still had not received the book. I doubt it will ever get to her so 2 weeks ago, I bought another copy of the book. I also decided to give her a pair each of Sz4 and Sz5 straight needles. I inherited those needles and 20 skeins of Sirdar Cotton yarn when a friend of mine gave up knitting. I also gave her a few skeins of the yarn since I have so many. And the results? Check it out yourself!

I am so proud of her! But I think the yarn is too fine(gauge wise) for a beginner. Hopefully she will hang on there and not give up by the lack of progress.

Hey, that's absolutely great - thanks for sharing the link to your friend's blog, it's fantastic to see that you've recruited another knitter! She's doing a really great job so far, and I do admire her for her courage using such fine yarn right at the beginning!
