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.
