that my partner Charlie has already passed my skill levels where knitting is concerned, lol? We've both only been knitting just over a month, and he's already an old hand at the DPNs and whatnot, whereas I look at a pattern and tremble in intimidation.
The funny thing is, he's probably going to end up not that into knitting in the end anyways (or maybe he will, who knows?)...he's just *very* into figuring things out, decyphering the technicalities and whatnot.
The good thing (not that there's a bad thing really) is that I have an easier time learning through visual demonstration as opposed to reading in a book, so I'll have my own personal instructor I guess!
