I took my daughter to the knitting group at church last night, thinking that she might enjoy working on charity projects, and she really enjoyed it. She didn’t get much done and I think we have to frog and reknit the portion she worked on, but there were others to help her (besides impatient me) and I think it helped her.
She is excited to go back and even took a skein of yarn from their stash to work on before the next time she goes back. (She was working with an afghan square and wants to try a knit-flat infant bootie.) She is 8 years old and was surprised that there were no teenagers there – that’s what she pictured when I warned her that the other knitters would be older than her LOL – but she said it she didn’t mind.
I worked on Frozen and couldn’t tell you how far along it is now. I kept getting distracted and in the end just shoved it into my bag when we left. (We stayed 20 minutes later than I had planned!)
