A Knitter is Born!



The knitting gene missed a generation in my family. I was never able to interest my daughter in knitting (although she is very happy to receive the results of my knitting!). I taught my oldest granddaughter to knit a couple of years ago. But the first couple of times I tried to teach my youngest to knit she really wasn't very interested. Today she said "I think I can knit now". So I handed her some size 10 needles and some bulky yarn, cast on for her and showed her what to do - then walked away......

After a short while I heard the words "I did it!"

Getting pretty comfortable here! I've never actually tried to knit in this position, but it seems to work for her!

Great Job!
My oldest granddaughter is only 5 but wants to learn. I am a lefty so it is going to be tricky!

Very cool! She looks immensely comfortable as opposed to some adult learners I know who look like they are being tortured! LOL!

I love reading about kids learning. My oldest granddaughter is 7, but my daughter is an avid knitter and crocheter herself. I LOVE the photo! Good job, Grammie!
