*UPDATE: Fairy got a huge grin when I read her all the lovely comments. It is very encouraging.*
Fairy wanted me to share some of her photos. She has recently finished her first “bigger” knitting project… a blankie sized to fit one of her lovey dollies. She has been working diligently on this project for the last few months but has taken a real interest in knitting lately… her knitting basket goes with her everywhere these days. It is not uncommon to see her outside knitting or knitting in the back seat of the car. So her progress has moved rapidly lately.
She carefully and frequently checked the blankie’s size by holding it up to her dolly, not cutting corners. When she had determined that it was done and I had helped her bind off, she immediately asked to borrow my camera (as hers is currently out of commission). If you ever doubt how children learn to “be” it is so by modeling our behavior as happily apparent in times like these… (there are other times that I would rather not take credit for). So the photos below were taken by Fairy to document her first big knitting project and she told me I should blog about it.
To knit our own blankie, cast on enough stitches to “cover” your doll.
Knit until it is long enough to cover your doll.
Cover your sweet dollie and make her all cozy!
She already has two more project on her needles… another blankie to match for her second dolly and an ambitious scarf.
