Ok, so who learned to knit cause their children are in Waldorf school and have been knitting since grade 1?
I have 2 children -- ds is almost 12 and in 6th grade. Last year he made a pair of socks and offered to help me with my kitchner phobia. "It's easy, Mom" he said. "I'll help you." This year his class is working on making dolls -- not knitted but sewn.
DD is 8 and will be learning to crochet this year. I can't do that either :oops:
I learned to knit as a child from my mom and grandmother but never really did much with it other than a baby sweater or 2 when I was pregnant with my kids but I started knitting in earnest when my oldest started Waldorf playgroup. What else was there to do while the kids were playing? The moms would chat and knit.
Then there were all those lovely knitted toys in the Kindergarten. By then I was seriously hooked. Now we are a knitting family (well, the kids and I are -- dh travels most of the time.) There are many nights that the kids clamor to start a project and we all just sit and knit together. I bring knitting everywhere and know that there will be others who do the same. There is always a knitter or 2 at a class meeting or social event.
So, are there any others out there?
