a tiny blanket, together

Thank you so much for all your kind words about the baby and the sweater from yesterday’s post.  I am most grateful for the community here and the friendships which have been created.

In addition to the baby knitting, there has been lots and lots of knitting this past week.  Last year, Ella expressed an interest in learning how to knit.  We had a successful introduction at the time.  Shortly after, she set the needles aside.  Ella asked me to find her needles and her yarn last week.  She had made up her mind to make a blanket for her tiny stuffed zebra.  In. Around. Through. Off.  Repeat.  We sit together.  One row at a time.  She knits the row.  We check for mistakes together.  I fix the mistakes.  Just like that we are almost there – a tiny blanket for her zebra.

    So sweet! We just had our first knitting lessons over the weekend and everyone wanted to knit toy blankets, too!
