Toddlers and knitting
The two really don't seem to mix. My lovely 2 yr old daughter 3 times took my dpns out of the sock I'm working on. Three times I managed to get everything back on the needles without loosing any stitches - thank goodness! It wouldn't really be so bad, except she then used the needle to stir my coffee Now my needles are all sticky. But the sock is all good! lol

I feel your pain! my 2 year old takes my yarn and unravels my knitting to wrap it around the baby (almost 5 months)...kids geeze. And today he took one of my dpn and pretended he had long hair and was using it as hair stix-I just shook my head.

Less sugar? NOOOOOOO! If nothing else, I'm learning to put stitches back on the needle and to pick up stitches. At least she didn't unravel this time.

You could always let the little one pick out a ball of his or her very own yarn, and give him/her some chunky needles to play with while you two "knit" together. I did that with my youngest one, and it seemed to work OK.

My middle one is 5 and she's knitting for real now, it's so cute. I ought to post a picture.

I thought about that, until she tried to poke the 11 month old in the face with a needle. She's not yet ready.

I'm sure that there is something she could use. I never thought of popsicle sticks. Hmmm

I don't know how, but my 19 month-old has seemed to get the drift that my knitting stuff is hands-off. But not to tempt things, I put my baskets out of his reach when I'm not knitting.

The higher I put it up, the higher she climbs. LOL I did give her a small hunk of cheap yarn and a set of plastic chop sticks today. She LOVED it. Granted, all she does is poke at the yarn, but she left my stuff alone!
