She didn't at first... I would tell her to knit what she wanted and I would finish the row for her. And this is her 3rd try at it... I've had to frog 2 for her... she's a true knitter, she hates having to frog!

I don't use bamboo or wood, but I noticed your little girl is. Do you think that is the better choice for a little one?
I started off her off with metal straight cuz I don't use them and I had them and knew that it would matter how long it took her. But she kept dropping stitches. And sometimes she wouldn't push it down the needle or put the point thingys on so she lost some that way too.

I think it's a good idea to have both metal and wood for them and with a young group I would start off with more wood ones. But I can't stand wood circulars (I tolerate wood dpn), never have liked them or plastic. So I would be worried that they would hold too much for some and that might discourage them.

But I would use circulars. It's a lot harder to loose stitches on circulars than straights.

Thank you all!
