She Learned to Knit!

My initial title for this post was going to start out "I Taught Her......." but not only was that full of hubris and disingenuous, it was just plain untrue.
The big story here is not how - or even if I taught her - it's what this delightful child picked up on her own with precocious fine-motor skills and a serious intent. She can already write her name in neat cursive; I knew knitting would  be a welcome challenge and a skill she would quickly pick up.
I set her up with some adorable little children's knitting needles, by Pony. They are in two different colours and they have adorable little kitty faces on the ends. We started out with a light worsted yarn, but hit pay dirt when I switched her over to a thicker, regular worsted-weight cotton. She's now working on her first project: a coffee-cup sleeve for her dad.
