Like I posted yesterday, I spent pretty much the entire day with the Papoose and the Sprout. The Papoose is always fascinated by my knitting, she will pick up a piece of yarn and run it through her fingers, saying “I’m knitting”. She also has a toy that is big wooden beads on a string that can be strung and unstrung and she’ll put them on and take them off, all the while saying, “Look! I’m knitting!” In keeping with my belief that you’re never too young or too old to learn something new, I fixed her up a real, live knitting bag with some old, wooden, blunt size 13 needles and three balls of some scrap yarn – pink, green and blue. She was so proud! Like I said, never too young. I cast on a few stitches for her and she played around with “knitting” most of the day. Here’s my favorite photo from yesterday –

Another Knitter Is Born
Seriously, I get a warm, fuzzy, lump in the throat feeling looking at these, thinking about sharing my love for knitting and fiber with the grands and then their sharing it and hopefully, loving it as much as I do. The more (ehem) mature I become, the more I crave continuity and this makes my heart and soul sing.

I love that she loves the water, I see a lot more pool/lake time in the future!
I can be changed by what happens to me but I refuse to be reduced by it. Maya Angelou
