I had a difficult time finding someone who speaks Gaelic even in Skye. On next return, I will try harder. I was told that when the “oldies” come to town in Portree (some market day?) that they often spoke Gaelic, but we didn’t have the opportunity to check that out. Ho hum. :\
And it will help you to understand both how large and how small the world is. I lived in a foreign country at the age of 10-11, and it changed the course of my life. I will never forget it.
My 10-yr-old niece taught me an easy way to cast on, and the knit stitch, and I went online to one of the many tutorials and learned to purl and bind off. It’s so much easier than I ever thought it would be.
Now I’m over halfway through my first project (a scarf, of course, in a simple stockinette stitch (k2, p2), and am really enjoying it. I pick it up whenever I have spare time and have watched (mostly listening!) two movies in the process. It’s incredibly addictive for someone who fidgets as much as I do anyway. It gives me something to do with my fingers. Don’t overdo it though – you get a bit of hand cramps and carpal tunnel pain after a few hours straight. Still, I can’t stop!
