E has been begging me to teach her how to knit, for about 2 years now. Unfortunately, I didn't know how- until another mom in our playgroup offered to teach me. She ended up starting a little knitting group for anyone who wanted to learn, and we have met on several Monday nights, after the kids are in bed. Our first group project was a little dishcloth, which taught us how to increase and decrease as we knit on the diagonal. Mine turned out a little more diamond shaped than square, but it still works.
The next project was a little hat. I had originally intended mine to be for N, but it ended up a little small, so it now is K's.
I also bought E some large kid needles (#15) and she is currently working on a scarf for herself. It is coming along very nicely, and I hope to knit a matching hat for her. I really want to do a circular one, but I am not sure I am ready to use double sided needles.
