Well, it went really well. She came, she watched, she knitted. I cast on 30 stitches and knit a few rows in garter stitch and had her watch. Then I handed her the needles, and she did it. She knitted several rows, and Eileen helped to guide her. During her knitting, she gained 10 stitches - which really made her watch more closely to what she was doing - a good lesson, I thought. So, she's gonna practice garter stitch, and next Wednesday we'll try purling. I also gave her a couple of beginner books for reference. She was so proud of herself, and so excited, and I'm very proud of her. She's gonna be ok! I'll post some pictures tomorrow of tonight's festivities. Have a great night!
