Teaching my niece to knit
My niece is staying with me a few days and I'm going to try to teach her to knit. She's 7 and I hope I can do it.
Knitting is my yoga!

I taught both my grandsons to knit. I imagine a 7-year-old girl will take to it beautifully! I found that teaching English is easiest.

Make it a fun project and she'll probably eat it up.

Maybe a teddy bear?

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
