Knitting with Kids

Knitting with Kids

I have just one new craft project to share …

… teaching my six-year-old how to knit.

We had an outing of our own. Just the two of us. To Jo-Ann to pick out a new craft for her.
She picked knitting. And she was determined. She didn’t want a kids kit either. She wanted real yarn and real needles.
Did I mention she was set on this?
OK then.
She picked out her own, colorful yarn, and we got some needles. And a cute, helpful book, Kids Learn to Knit.
We followed it up with ice cream. Of course.
The next day we got started.
I was amazed at how quickly she picked up casting on, especially as I looked back at how difficult I first thought it was ~ LOL.

She’s been plugging away at it ever since.
And I think she is doing great!

  1. That's great! I think it's fun to see how kids catch on to things that we parents think might be too difficult. Clara just started piano a couple of weeks ago and I was afraid she just wouldn't "get it" but she's doing fabulously (and her mother is living vicariously through her!). What a fun project for the two of you. And she'll be able to tell other young women who never learn to knit "my mom taught me!"

  2. that is so awesome!
    i think she is doing a great job!
    and i am totally impressed because it took me forever just to learn how to cast on!
