This evening we had visitors at Willow's Cottage. Friends from Los Angeles stopped by on the way home from a short vacation (Happy 29th Birthday, Doug!). Most every Thursday night for the past three years I have taken my knitting to their house and their daughters have watched me knit sweaters and socks and hats, some of those items for them. They have helped me wind and unwind balls of yarn, choose colors and gauge sizes.
So, tonight I gave a first knitting lesson to this one.
Lots of guided help makes for a successful lesson.
So proud of her first rows of knitting!
Who is this new knitter?
Yes, she looks familiar. My model for the Aran sweater. Just as cute as ever. Just as sweet as ever. Just as much fun as ever!
And her little sister. She had her first 'lesson', too.
The Professor was still teaching when they first arrived. Olivia walked through the house, looking in every room, checking everywhere. Finally she walked back into the living room and asked, "Where's John?" We all know who the favorite one is around here.
Oh yeah. They were accompanied by their parents.
Thanks for stopping by, Peters!
