"I will teach someone how to knit but only if 10 other knitters will do the same."

I've decided that teaching people how to knit will support my local yarn shop and the knitting industry at large. Thinking about it, I thought that if all of the other knitters I know also teach someone to knit we could maybe improve the economy just a little. We all know someone who always admires our handiwork, so put some needles in their hands and get knitting!
Maybe everyone you know already knits, teach them a new technique! For instance, my mom was already a knitter, a knitter who didn't knit socks. She was always asking me to knit socks, so I eventually gave her a sock kit for her birthday and what do you know, she's knitting socks like crazy. This of course means that she's also buying sock yarn. I think you see where this is going.
So teach someone you love how to knit, if only for the sheer thrill of sharing something you love.
