While we were in the shop picking up some Halloween decorations last week, the young boy spotted a ‘make your own kit’.
” Yes, as long as you do it yourself – it’s your kit, OK?”
We got home. The kit instructions proved completely indecipherable. Even I could not make head or tail out of them. Undeterred, I looked up YouTube, and found a great tutorial on loom knitting.
I got him started, and he was off!
At this point, I got a bit jealous. Someone in the house was knitting, and it wasn’t me! 😦 There was housework to be done, and all I could do was watch from the sidelines!
In fact, he was so happy with his efforts that he prompted started an orange coil to make a pumpkin. The pumpkin is finished, and now he’s on to a multicolour coil.
It’s quite funny having a knitting companion on the house…
