i can't tell you how much my heart filled when my little man exclaimed that he wanted to learn to knit. !!! i mean he only just turned 5. that's pretty young... especially for a boy i think.
and i really really didn't want to discourage him ... but also, put no pressure on him to enjoy something i'm completely obsessive about. (haha no pressure kiddo). haha.
so we started with finger knitting. perfect...
and guess what?! he loooves it! he sat his little butt down for 45 min straight the first time.
i'm so very proud of him... and beyond thrilled that he genuinely wanted to learn something that i am so passionate about!
this is his very first f.o. and i love it! he wanted to make a necklace for his auntie.... to be totally honest.. (and not biased.. ha) i think it's awesome... and i would love it if he made one for me too!! ;)
he has asked to learn on real knitting needles... so i did get him some kids ones, but we've only tackled a row or so... baby steps... we'll probably stick mostly to finger knitting... and of course, he's my biggest helper in the kitchen... my little man is growing up! xo
