Last week I was invited to a Workshop at Marcella's (the lady whose house we are renting) parents house to learn how to knit. The pretty lady sitting in the white chair is the instructor, Jennifer. Behind her and to the left is Roselin, Marcella's Mother. The little boy in the photo is adorable and quite entertaining.
We used an oblong board with a hole in the middle surrounded by small nails. It was very similar to they spool knitting I used to do when I was a child.
