I'm in the process of teaching 2 of my granddaughters(14 & 8) now. The older one is a natural knitter, :happydance: , her younger sister is having problems though, she's over thinking it. The same problem I had for years, but I'm starting her on the knifty knitter looms. That way I can get her to relax about it a little, she can be so serious for her age, God bless her little pea picking heart.
Becca, I hope your DD enjoys a lifetime of happy knitting with you.
