Wanted: New Best Friend

Married mother of one in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh seeking new best friend to help her learn more about knitting.

I enjoy sipping lattes, groping yarn in every craft store I go into, and untangling the mess of knots I get when trying to find the ending in a new ball of yarn.

I am extremely motivated and a very fast learner. Unfortunately, motivation doesn’t turn 100 yards of beautiful yarn into something more useful, like say, a scarf. It also doesn’t turn the squiggly spaghetti-like lines in a “learn to knit” book into anything coherent.


Must posess inhuman amounts of patience.
Must be able to resist the urge to laugh at giant knotted mess of yarn that was suppose to be a hat.
Must be willing to work for free in exchange for a free cup of coffee and the satisfaction of knowing you made a new best friend for life.

Like AFF said . . .

OK, I'm on the wrong side of town, as in two tunnels away and we both know how hell-ish that can be, BUT I learned online from .

I can't learn without doing and seeing and loved being able to rewind over and over and over until I figured it out. Not that I've finished that sweater I started in October, because I haven't. *sigh*
