We watch the TV show, Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader, on Sunday nights, and I've found that the questions I can't answer are learning experiences for me; I'll remember them most of the time.
This is all leading to the question, am I too old to learn to knit? When I was about ten years old, my grandmother gave me two short pieces of baling wire (I'm assuming they were her knitting needles) and someone taught me two stitches and how to cast the thread onto the "needles"; I made several little purple squares, about the size of a small potholder. I've looked online and found a simple pattern for a baby blanket to be knit on circular needles. My daughter brought some needles to me and when I get a chance to buy yarn I'm going to give it a try. If my brain can't hold another wrinkle, I know that knit things are as easy to unravel as crochet work.
