This afternoon, Emma asked me if I would give her some yarn and teach her how to knit. Be still my heart. I cannot tell you how happy this makes me.

What concentration! I cast on 20 stitches and knit the first row slowly to show her the steps. Then I handed it off to her. She proceeded to knit the entire row, with a minimal amount of help! Learning on slippery Addi Turbos is perhaps not the best way, but she did great.

She said it was "fun" and "neat" and then asked if we could knit a sock. What have I created???!!!

She only knit the one row before moving on to the next distraction, but look at that grin of accomplishment!

There is something so magical about watching tiny hands working the needles. I love that grin!
