I've been waiting for this moment for such a long time...
Today I've been teaching my eldest daughter (who is 5 years old) how to knit.
I was sceptical at first as to whether she was old enough. I thought maybe her motor skills might not be quite developed enough.... I was wrong.
She picked it up so quickly. She's a little bit cack-handed but I think for a 5 year old she's done brilliantly. I'm so excited about the prospect of us knitting together.
We started out doing the moves together, but after about 3 stitches, she was off on her own.
One very proud little girl
Apparently she's making a blanket for Pinkie (Pinkie is a teddy they have at school)
and it wouldn't be complete without video evidence right?
This video was longer but I had to cut it down to upload it. As per usual, I got out the camera way too late and could only get her knitting whilst distracted by a talking sponge.
