Nearly 3 and Knitting!

January 18th, 2014

It is only a few days until my daughter turns 3, were does the time go!? and I am pleased to be able to say my daughter could knit just before her 3rd birthday! well I use ‘can knit’ quite loosely, she is almost there but still needs a little help to steady her needles, all the movements are coming from her she’s just a little over enthusiastic when it comes to pushing the knitted stitch off the needle! to help with this I have now got her some super duper extra chunky needles with the hope it will help, as she is so young she grips the needles very differently so I think it will be a good move, I cast on a few rows and put it aside to wrap…thing is now I want some! they are really nice and knit up well and the things I could make…. and quickly too! I guess I am just never happy if someone has something I don’t!

For her birthday I will be making her a cake,well mostly decorating it, i think my husband will have to help a lot with the making part! as it is not my cake I have to resist the temptation to make a knitting related one! I am thinking butterfly or flower!

Her hat is nearly done now, just a few rows to go and it is looking good, though I am not happy with the cast on it will do for now, it is really loose so it has a super stretch!

I have to admit that I was hoping to have a few other bits knitted for her birthday, maybe a jumper or even a jacket but I haven’t had the time as I took on other stuff, and I have less than a week till my sons birthday and not knitted a thing!

well cakes are calling wish me luck!
