Even though I already know how to knit, I would totally attend this event if I could.
I’ve often thought a problem with learning to knit is the tendency to make people start with a scarf, which is actually a very advanced project. It requires the knitter to have a lot of stamina and tolerance for a pattern that doesn’t change up at points. This is what’s so great about socks, the make a 90-degree turn in the middle and have to taper to a toe at one end! But a tiny squid! What a great idea.
