I went to Tennessee a few weeks ago for a class trip. While we were there, we found this adorable little yarn shop put in what used to be an old house called "A Likely Yarn." I got some nice wool yarns there and one of my professors got some hand-dyed yarns for his two teenage knitting daughters. After that trip, a friend asked me to teach her how to knit. I had some extra yarn and extra needles, so I did, but we were on a bumpy car ride and both the needles and the yarn were sock weight, so she made a valiant effort, but didn't get very far. Instead, she made an accidental alien! We all loved it though, so I cast-it-off and she took it home. Overall, it was a lot of fun.
