Has anyone taught their children to knit and if so, how did you do it? Is it better to use big needles and chunky yarn, or is smaller better? Do you show them or do you help them from behind? Is there a better way to teach knitting or is it as individual as all things related to learning?
My 8 1/2 year old is really anxious to learn so it seems a great time to teach her.
Also, can anyone recommend an easy project for a beginnner other than the usual scarf? Thanks in advance,
