Hey...what a coincidence. My daughter has bridged over from a Brownie GS to a Junior GS and I have been asked, as well, to complete one of their badges with them that includes knitting (which will include CO, K, P, BO), crocheting, cross stitch and weaving.
We have seven girls in our troop and I decided to make them a small booklet that shows each step with illustrations and directions on how to do each task with the last page being a picture of them with their small project. I figured it would be a nice keepsake.
I'm really hoping that at least one of them will continue knitting. Unfortunately, my 9 year old daughter has no interest HOWEVER, one of my 17 year old sons has taken a liking to it and his first project was the dropped-stitch scarf shown on Amy's site
. I taught my other son how to knit continental style (he's left handed) and he was really good at it but it didn't fit in with his "Goth" image although, he loves the Voodoo doll, skull bag and hackey sack I made for him. I'm glad at least one of my kids have developed a love for yarn just as much as I do. I needed someone to blame for spending so much money on it.
