My 5-year-old niece knitting!
I brought my knitting with me to Thanksgiving dinner with my inlaws yesterday, and both my niece and nephew asked me to teach them to knit! It was such a thrill to watch my niece, especially, because she's so young, actually knitting!

I taught them the English method, which I realized would be much easier for them than the Continental. I used that rhyme (I've got to include this on the knitting page) "In through the front door, once around the back. Peek through the window, and off jumps Jack!" My niece was so cute, repeating the rhyme! She got it right away! It was so cool!

...Just had to share! :D

‎"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
