Last year my oldest granddaughter, Emily, said...
Created By: Marilyn Temple

Last year my oldest granddaughter, Emily, said she wanted to learn to knit. Well, there were several barriers to teaching her. 1) She was 7; 2) I had never taught anyone to knit, and 3) I was left-handed and she was right-handed.

Well, we did it. We worked together and she learned how. She did alright, but got a little overwhelmed with it. I had started her on Size 8 needles and regular worsted weight yarn. Apparently too small. Then at Halloween I got her some Size 10 needles and some Lion Brand Thick N Quick yarn and she went to town!!! We went to visit a couple of weeks later and Emily asked me to go upstairs, she had a problem with her knitting, and not to tell her Mom. We went upstairs and found the problem. She had knitted up all of her yarn and needed more to make her Mom a scarf for Christmas. We got her more yarn and she finished the scarf in time.

Of course, it was the best gift her Mom could ever have gotten. But that is not the end of the story. In February, Emily and her brother and sister couldn't go to school because of a "snow day". Emily started knitting and she taught her Mom how to knit!!!

We now have Aunt Tabbi to teach Too!! Emily says she will help me teach her also.

I am so proud to leave this wonderful legacy, and hope to teach others how to knit soon. I take my knitting everywhere I have to wait and if people ask about it I encourage them to learn it or teach it to someone they know.

Hobbies are a very valuable thing to know, and they are something you will always have!!!

Grandma Temple :-)
