I have dreams of my girls going above and beyond me in their education, especially in the domestic arts. While I know how to knit, crochet, and sew a little, I have to admit they aren’t on my short list of things I want to do when I have spare time. I think that is partly due to me learning these late in my teens. It seems that learning a skill at a very young age is best, then the child has more time to develop it in to his or her unique art.
So imagine my joy at discovering this circular knitting loom, called the Nifty Knitter, on which you can knit hats and scarves easily and quickly. And, my two daughters, only 4 and 6, are already becoming quite proficient at it! This will be great for those dreary fall evenings to come, when you only want to sit inside where it is warm and drink hot cider. At least while we’re doing that, the girls can be keeping their fingers busy making Christmas gifts. Maybe I’ll start a project, too.
“I’m gettin’ knittin’ for Christmas,
Cause Big A ain’t done nuttin’ but knit!”
