I’m a pretty good knitting teacher — for adults. I’m not confident in teaching kids to knit, especially my own. However, a friend of mine, a former teacher, had successfully taught her three girls to knit. So I asked her if she’d teach my kids. We met up last week for an hour. While her girls and I made pom poms, she taught my kids to knit, using all kinds of analogies — and demonstrating far more patience than I ever could.
Watching them wrap that yarn around the needle just tickles me.
