There is a new knitter in my house.Ã‚Â Bug wanted me to teach her to knit, again.Ã‚Â Last timeÃ‚Â she got frustrated and gave up.Ã‚Â This time I bought her a set of knitting looms.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â She took to them like a duck to water.Ã‚Â I started by showing her how to set up the first rows and before I had even gotten all the way around the loom she said, “Ok, mom, I can do it myself.”Ã‚Â And she did.
This isÃ‚Â her first FO, a hat for her baby doll made fromÃ‚Â two strands of encore worsted in pink and purple.Ã‚Â It took her less than two days.
As soon as she finished the first hat she was bugging me to let her “pick out her own yarn” from my stash . . . ummm, hold on there little girl that’s MY stash, get your own . . . no, wait, here . . . and I gave her a bunch of colors of Cascade 220 to choose from.Ã‚Â She picked light pink and white, and she is making a hat for herself.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â If it turns out too small for her she wants to donate it to “the children who don’t have a hat”, so it will go to the Dulaan Project if that’s the case.
