She learned to knit at school last year and made a seal (it was meant to be a mouse). Although Katie has a habit of adding on stitches, I think she is doing well for a 7 year old.
She is so excited with her stash and is getting stuck in to making a mouse. I asked what else she plans to knit. She want to make scarves and clothes for her dolls and also a scarf for her cousin who is in the same class as her at school. They are very close friends.
I love the fact that she wants to knit and not just sit in front of the TV this school hoildays.
I'm still working on the back of my cardie. Its a slow process with a teething 7 month old and I can't seem to tear myself away from the computer (knitting blog sites) much to my partner's disgust with my new found hobby. He has become a blog widower. ;)
