my nan and my mum are both amazing, they can do it real fast and without looking, whereas i have to concentrate really hard on it, and i usually take about 40 secinds for each piggin' stitch.

well, get shown by someone , because the instructions in the booklet i got are confusing as it gets. i still don't get it completely. it's like, knit one row, then do two kniot stitches, then a purl row, then two knit stitches at the end of the row, then do a knit row, and so on and so forth.

My girlfriend tried to teach me...and failed miserably.
She was doing a scarf for a friend at the time and you can clearly see which line is mine :o I thought it gave it a bit of character...

It takes some serious talent to find a way to whine about your relationship in a KNITTING thread.

dude, if it bugs you, talk to your girlfriend. not us.

Nah I was about to say my friend can teach me, but then realized I can't, and to tell the truth I really cannot be assed to stop typing a message when I start.

I know how to knit. My old textile crafts teacher used to give me "knitting homework"

Oh man, I could kill for knitting homework. Hell, I've gotten a lot more knitting done than homework in the last couple weeks. I've made a pair of black armwarmers, I'm halfway through a blue pair, and I just knit a wool and mohair ribbed orange hat. Mmmm, yay! Perhaps I'll post pictures sometime.
