New knitters

Every time a fairy clicks her knitting needles and new knitter is born...
I have been having a hard time finding knitters to knit with here. I don't know why that is, it just seems that most people quilt. Which is fine, because I joined up with them too. :-) So last night I started to create my knitters. Kind of like Frankenstein's monster. There were 3 victims (students), and they did great!!! We will meet every other Tuesday, I don't want to stress them out. But I am on call in case they want some help in between.
One of my observations I made last night was that how when you are little and learning something new, you just went for it. If it's not perfect, that's ok, because you're learning. I found last night that my students were very intent on getting it "right". And we all know that when you are learning something new that it takes practice to get it right. I wonder at what age do we lose our fearlessness of "failing" at something new? And can we get it back?
The best part of last night was finally having a knitting group to call home after so long! (And the laughter, and the off-knitting talk.)

I hear you! I would love a knitting group. They do have them but they are just not accessible to me...
