This morning my daughter said, "Mom, when can I learn to knit?" Uh, how about NOW. So I pulled out a short pair of size 8's and we went to work with some pink (of course) yarn.
I had my doubts...okay, I had A LOT of doubts. I didn't think little 7 year old fingers would be able to do it, but she did really well! We made a little scarf for her bunny (from beadyeyelass, by the way--so cute!) and there are several rows on that scarf that she did herself--the whole row, by her own 7 year old little self. Aren't kids amazing?
She really enjoyed it too. Yea, a knitter is born. :)
