    I am a really good knitter. But then again, I am a 30-level narcissist whereas you are only a 20, so maybe you should just hang it up. Just saying.

    Ooohh, yeah, the needles are a major benefit. I’m still trying to figure out how to use them to change the channel on the TV when I can’t find the remote.

    Everyone sucks at first. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Just keep practicing and you’ll be knitting beautiful sweaters in no time.

    You know June, if you just can’t master it, you could always pick up the “Sew Easy Knitting Machine”. Oh what the hell, why not pick up the “Bedazzler” also. Just think you could be sparkly everyday at work.

    I totally want to be in the knitting gang. What’s the intiation? Do I need to get jabbed at with the needles? Will you knit me up in a knitted straight jacket first?
    June, look at the fun you’ll have. Keep at it. Then you can join the knitting gang. Or create your own, the rival knitting gang.
    Remember your inner narcissist. You can do it. Remember you are better than the knitting and if you need to, after someone looks at something you have knitted, flash your ta ta’s at them. They won’t remember what you knitted.

    At first it felt like I had about eight fingers on each hand till I got the hang of it. It takes time and practice, you can do it.
    Is there really a knitting gang sign? If not there needs to be one!

    Don’t give up – it is hard and awkward at first, but give it time. Don’t know if you read Chickens in the Road – but Suzanne McMinn is as talented as they come and she is also trying to learn to knit and having trouble. It will come – promise.

    I was a crocheter who taught herself to knit in high school. I made 2 sweaters. Thought I was brilliant. Wore them to death. Then I guess I lost interest -maybe it was all that brilliance! I picked up back up about five or six years ago and when I look at some of the stuff I made – PURE CRAP!! My advice is if you enjoy the knitting process just keep on even if it is crap. For me, it’s the process or the journey and not the finished project.
