Go Gophers Go
Big news. My daughter (9) asked me yesterday if I would teach her to knit. I've asked her so many times I can't count anymore and she's never been interested. She found some pretty leftover Claudia Hand Painted yarn. That was the first good sign. Good taste. Must get that from me. heh.
I cast on and showed her what to do and after about 2 hours of solid focus, she had completed about 1 1/2" of the most perfect knitting I've ever seen. She actually got angry with me when I told her she couldn't knit at the dinner table. A girl after my own heart. She wore a headlamp from Amma's house so she could knit in the car on the way home last night.
This morning, a tiny little girl with messy hair and bad breath crawled into my bed with her stuffed animal and her knitting. After showing her that she has to always start with the yarn on her right, she was off again. I am the proudest mama in the world.
entered her first project! She has been on Ravelry constantly checking for messages (from her cousin) and sending me comments on my page. What a nice Thanksgiving treat.
Happy Holidays to all!
