Now I am working on a pair socks for my older daughter L. I let the girls pick the wool to make sure they are part of the process. They really like watching the piece "grow" from the needles. It made L. want to learn it and she is now knitting on her first scarf for her favorite stuffed animal. It so nice to sit next to each other on the couch knitting and chatting away.
I love that I can fill dull or unproductive moments like being the co-pilot on a car ride, waiting for my daughters or watching TV with a useful activity.
