Does anyone here teach knitting?
I do 2 or 3 times per week. What I'm really struck by is the amount of people (older than I am) who don't know their right hand from the left nor do they know the names of their fingers, such as index finger, middle finger and ring finger. This gets frustrating when you're trying to teach. I have people say "I use this hand" and show me their right hand or "I use this finger" and show me their index finger.

OK, I'm not sure if you can read this or not, but I've attached a file for my sock link below.

In Me Talk Pretty One Day, David Sedaris has a chapter called 'The Tapeworm Is In', where he writes about listening to books on tape in Paris and how it made him look kind of like the other creepy men hanging around the park playground. For me it's listening to podcasts on my laptop while working on mitten #2, and the location is not a Paris playground but the Rhode Island Convention Center.
David (not Sedaris, but rather my partner) is here for a trade show to try to pick up some new accounts, but as it would be expensive to get me a badge to accompany him into the exhibit hall, I'm left to my own devices for the afternoon. The convention center thoughtfully provides free wireless access and electrical outlets to plug in laptops, so I'm sitting here catching up on some podcast listening (CBC Radio has some good music ones, both English and French) and seeing what progress I can make with my knitting.
