You have a good point. I have trouble getting my 8yo into the "zone" where she can knit for a good while, but she does have the movements down. Maybe later...I'll be teaching one of her friends to crochet in the winter, too...


I just taught my friend to knit. she is well into her 50's, and has watched me knit for the 11 years we have been friends. All of a sudden she asked me to teach her. It was such a delight! We started with the cotton washcloth, and next she wants to make a novelty scarf. I am just so thrilled that she wants to share my passion I'll help her knit underwear out of garden twine if she wants. My 11 year old daughter on the other hand, I started teaching when she was 6 or so and only feigns liking it when she wants something from me.

What you say is so true. My Nana taught me to knit when I was a little girl. I didn't knit 'til I was in my late 20's but when I did, everything she shared with me came rushing back.

She also taught me to sew without patterns -- not that I do that today!
