My daughter, who is three and a half, really wishes she could knit. I think it’s as much about doing something that she sees me enjoying and spending a lot of time on as it is her actually wanting to learn, but I think it’s really sweet that she pretends to knit (and that it involves a lot less banging of needles onto tables like it used to when she would pretend to knit).
It’s not quite time for her to learn yet, but when it is I’ll be glad to have a copy of Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf by Alana Dakos handy.
This book is about a little girl who wants to learn to knit like her mom, but is quickly frustrated when her pink scarf doesn’t come out looking anything like mom’s perfect knitting.
I happen to have two copies of this book, so one of you can check it out, too. Actually, this giveaway is for the deluxe edition, which includes the book, a puzzle, stickers and a paper doll set, all in a gift box ready to hand over to a little one in your life who wants to learn how to knit.
For a chance to win, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, March 17. I’d love to know when you learned to knit. I think I was around 10, but I actually don’t remember!
Thanks for visiting and good luck.
