Isabella did a great job! She has barely set down the needles long enough to do her homework since I taught her...
Here is the proud little lady showing off her first creation!
As I was teaching her this craft, I was realizing just how therapeutic and calming knitting was. My grandmother taught me so long ago (I was about Isabella's age) and back then I didn't need an activity that was relaxing.
There was something about the click on the needles and the pattern of my fingers moving...so relaxing. I barely wanted to give her the knitting needles back for her turns to work! It's a good thing for her that her siblings were nearby yelling and screaming/pushing and shoving or else I might have made the little project myself.
I do have a one thing in particular that I would like to make (found on Pinterest):
Doesn't this look cozy for up here in the north country?
I just have to fit this project in between the others I have planned for Mark's absence....
