being a busy mumma i have made several excuses over the last little while and she has patiently kept reminding me that she would like to learn. so on a cosy afternoon i could refuse those pleading puppy eyes no more! sitting on my lap with our hands working together on the needles, we recited the verse that introduced ivy to knitting, and she slowly started to get it...and how pleased she was! so proud of herself...
she still needs guidance from big sis or mumma, but i have loads of faith in her future as a fantastic knitter!
some of ivy's past knitting blog posts here here & here - i should also note that i myself am a very *basic* knitter and have learned mostly from ivy who has such gusto-passion for knitting and handwork in general!
(i am not much of a 'book learner' but we do own this book and i must say it is very lovely and easy to learn from. ivy has worked on some of the patterns in both this book and the second version. highly recommend both, see if the library has them!)
