Anyone have any ideas for a 10 yr. old to knit. She has done hats before but is getting bored. She wants something for her friends for xmas, so something quick and inexpensive. Got to keep the young interested with something fun!
What about a scarf out of a fun fur yarn? If she has alredy been knitting hats, I think she'd have no problem with the yarn.
how about an iPod sock? try this link:
or maybe some felted purses? maybe a booga?
Here are some patterns that would be fun.

Thanks! Good ideas! I'll past them on--it's hard to know what might strike her fancy! I just think it's great that she is interested in knitting for her friends!
