My almost-seven-year old daughter is truely knit happy lately! She amazed me yesterday when she sat and listened to stories on CD while Mia and I worked on our main lesson for the day. Vivienne knitted an entire scarf in a sitting. And the next day, she completed several shorter pieces and sewed them all together to make a lovely, well crafted piece. She also came up with an interesting texture by first finger knitting the yarn for a length, then knitting that, and continuing again to first finger knit, then knit for the duration of the skein. It gives it a very pebbled, snuggly texture. There is even scientific evidence that knitting can offer long term health benefits! Time for me to pick up my knitting needles, too.
And my little gloves with the hole are continuing to become new things. Here is a little finger puppet.
