One summer, about four years ago, my daughter asked to learn how to knit.
The only hitch in her plan is that I’m not a knitter, so I couldn’t teach her. That, of course, was her main motivation for wanting to learn. What better than her knowing a craft I’ve never mastered?
We found a class at a local yarn shop and she learned to knit in just a few hours. She knitted all summer (she was 10 at the time) and has been knitting ever since.
I knew I was really starting to rub off on her when when one of the first things she did was to write her own pattern. I just beamed with pride! My daughter, designing!
I still haven’t learned to knit. Knitting is her craft and gives her the pride of being able to do something that I can’t. I find that I am completely okay with that.
I proudly present my daughter, Elena’s, first knitting pattern, unedited and in her own writing.
