little knitter

This morning, my little daughter asked me to teach her to knit. Now, this isn't the first time. We've probably had about a half dozen mini knitting lessons in the last year or so. But I'll be gol-danged if she didn't start to figure it out this time. I cast on a few stitches for her, then taught her the knit stitch: "Go in the front door, put on your scarf, come back out the door, and step off the porch." No, it doesn't rhyme, but it seems to work. She can do it! She knit several stitches all by herself (with a few reminders about where to stick the needle, but c'mon, she's only 4).

She is so proud. And so am I.
