Knitting with Maura

I knit, mainly simple things like fingerless mitts and scarves, but I knit.  I started several years ago, after teaching myself how to crochet.  It was always nice to have a project around while waiting for doctors or therapists, but now it’s morphed into something to do while watching tv.

Maura has always been a bit fascinated by it all – especially the knitting needles.  Which she’s used for drumsticks, as you do.  Recently however, she’s decided she can knit too.  I found this out the day I caught her plunging knitting needles into my newly finished scarf.

Because I’m awesome, I found her a half-knitted project I was going to take apart to redo, and let her have at it.

as you can see, she takes this seriously

Today, however, we had words about where she pilfers her knitting needles from.  The pencil holder on my desk?  That’s fine.  Out of mom’s current project with the stitch markers and double pointed needles?  Not cool.

She lucked out – I was able to put my needles back onto my project.  And then showed her where she is allowed to borrow knitting needles from.

Meanwhile, the girl needs a different hobby that won’t interfere with mine, lol!
