I was asked by Anna if I could please post her knitting and reading this week in the yarn along. She has been working diligently at making a scarf for her little sister.
I skipped teaching her to cast on and did that myself. She has learned many things about knitting so far. See all that extra yarn beside the ball? She learned that sometimes you must rip back and try again. And again. She brought me her work this morning with 6 extra stitches and a hole from a dropped stitch. I sat beside her and watched as she worked a row to make sure she remembered how to correctly wrap the yarn.
Anna has been reading The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. At bedtime, Olivia will read some of it to her, but mostly, she is reading it herself.
I think she will become quite the knitter in no time! Don't you?
As for me: one leg done, one to go on Therese's longies for the winter.
