Good luck, Fly. I taught my eldest DD to knit when she was five because she wanted to try. She picked it up quickly and in adulthood became an absolute expert.
DD2, though left-handed, was not to be beaten, so she learned too a few years later. I wish I'd thought to teach her opposite me rather than beside, as then she could have mirrored what I was doing. Anyway, she can knit but it isn't a big thing with her.
DD3 also learned in her last couple of years at primary school where I helped at an after-school knitting club. Now a university student, she has taken it up again.
I remember knitting dishcloths and tea-cosies at primary school, then bootees for my cousins when they were born. I was twelve before I had any cousins. Then I didn't knit much until I was at uni and decided to unravel an aran jumper and re-knit it.
Currently I'm knitting socks for me.
