Another Update

The Pirate has graciously consented to my showing off his progress so far.

For those of you who are non-knitters: have a cup of tea, talk amongst yourselves, stretch your legs. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled show in a moment.

For those of you who are knitters: Please tell the Pirate what you really think.

Note that I'm not trying to influence what you say... I am confident. Much more confident than the Pirate is, actually, because unfortunately *my* first knitting project has long ago been eaten by the sands of time, or dust bunnies, or something, so I cannot show it to him (he'd feel much better about his own skills if I could do so).

Aren't you jealous? Don't you wish he was yours?

So cruel to taunt us like...

That's really amazing for a first project! Heck, that's amazing for one's first 5 proejcts.

Wow! That is a first piece of knitting? Are you sure that *you* didn't knit that?

That is amazing, I am impressed!
4 times I have attempted to learn how to knit and never did I even manage a couple rows.
You could set a hot teapot down on it, you could take something hot out of the oven with it, you could set a vase of flowers on it...how is your football lernin' comin' along? :D
I wonder how hard it would be to knit a skull and crossbones design into a black background...

Looks pretty good to me! Much better than my first attempt!

I'm not a knitter, but I think it's FANTASTIC. Much much much much much better than I would have done.

'Kay, I'm not a knitter (well, I'm trying to be, and hopefully after Easter I'll be a knitter-in-training), but...

Pirate, it's awesome! YOU GO!

EXCELLENT work! I am very impressed! My first project was a dishcloth, so that's obviously gone by the wayside, but my second project was a sweater. And I knit the entire thing wrapping my purls the wrong way, thus twisting the stitches. It's a monument to my inability to knit correctly. So bravo!
