I teach boys and girls alike, too. I don't make them continue or anything, but I think it's great for kids and boys tend to need a bit of extra work on fine motor skills. Knitting is good for that.nogginpodge said:I teach all the youngsters to knit and crochet, even the boys.
A friend(right handed) taught me. I crochet left handed due to a handicap. My mama-in -law showed me the basics of knitting. I like to crochet more because I am a little slower at knitting. (Except when I really put my determination into it.)NyackGal said:I will always remember the nun who taught me to knit,Sister Pauline;my mother was a knitter,but she was left-handed and said she couldn't teach me.My grandmother crocheted,but she didn't teach me either.I now do both,but much prefer knitting!!
