Due to ritaw's post, I got brave and attempted to teach 4 yo to knit, well that meant I had to do it with the 3 yo also!! It was so much fun. We got our little mantra going and they did really well. The 3 yo only held one needle and I helped the 4 yo steady her needles when she wrapped her yarn around. I was impressed at how well they did especially on the small needles I had (size 5's)

I think I might have some future knitters! Thank you ritaw for the encouragement! I really enjoyed that time with my little ones.
