Kids & knitting

Last week I taught my homeschoolers to knit. They made their own wooden knitting needles with fimo clay end-caps, then I cast-on for them and they learned the basic knit stitch.

During the first class one little 7 year-old boy finally got the hang of it and said to me, "does this mean I'm making a scarf?" When I assured him that he was, he was so excited that he jumped up and bolted down the hall to the room where some of the moms work with younger siblings, "MOMMMMMMM, I'm making a real scarf!!!!" The excitement level is so great!

Next week we'll continue with our scarves and KoolAid dye some yarn to add to them. Should be fun & hopefully I'll have some pictures!
