So my wife and I want to start knitting. Basically we think it would be a good hobby to take up for 2 reasons. First is that it would take up time (so we are not spending money), and the end result is something useful. But the second reason is health based. We figure that at night when we sit in front of the TV, that if our hands are busy knitting, they won't be busy in a bag of chips. We also heard it is relaxing, so that will also help our health.
We are set to learn by an aunt of mine (she is teaching us tomorrow actually). She told us what needles to get and we are all set. I'm worried though that this is going to be much harder than I thought and that my wife will laugh at me because I can't do it. Plus this aunt said she would need about 3 to 4 sessions with us of about an hour each. I couldn't believe it. I figured show me a stitch in ten minutes, watch me do it, and I'm done.
Am I crazy? Am I going to fail at this?
