I am a HAPPY mommy

My daugher finally "clicked" on knitting today. I was having coffee with a friend (and crocheting). Friend - Maureen - was knitting. Jackie insisted that I get her some wool so she could do some finger knitting. Well, Maureen nipped down to the shop to get a few things and came back with some pretty little "kids knitting needles". I showed Jackie how to put her finger knitting on the needles and she carried on in garter stitch. Then she ripped everything out, got me to cast on 10 stitches for her, and she's been knitting on her scarf to be on and off for the rest of the day.

While I was at spinning this afternoon she even kept on knitting while watching Cartoon Network on TV.

I have been showing her the basics on and off ever since she showed an interest. This is the first time she's done so much in such a short time. Next she wants to be shown how to knit on four needles so she can make socks.

I think I have done SOMETHING right.
