    I can knit basics :oops:

    My mum and an old family friend taught us years ago when we were kids. My dad ended up getting a knitted comb cover for christmas for years :rofl:

    I've done the 2 arms and back of my first baby cardigan *puffs chest out very proud* and I've not dropped a stitch yet.
