My friend has a 6yo little girl who sees me once a week at the hockey rink. I am always knitting there and last week she asked me to show her. So the next week I brought something she could work on.
I showed her two knit stiches and then handed it to her. To my amazement she knit like she was born with the skill. I couldn’t believe it. She was able to copy my exact movements with no problem. She finished the row (25 stiches) and was very proud of herself.
Next week I am going to bring her needles and yarn for her to keep and work on.
I have taught 11 and 12 year olds and only one picked it up so fast.
