My little sister sees me knitting and wants to learn sooooo bad!
The problem, you see, is that she has a very low patience level and would probably end up driving a hole in the wall with the needle.
(She's 7, so she really would!) She knows how to finger-knit (slip the loop over the other loop on your finger. It's hard to explain) I'll post some pix soon.) and loves it, but she wants to take it further. How would the best way to teach her? She doesn't want to embarrass herself to death from not understanding stuff during a knitting lesson. My mom said she'd be better off with me teaching her to knit, which is fine with me.
If she get's frustrated (which happens often) she would frog the work
and throw the knitting needles.
I sometimes let her help wrap the yarn around the needle (listen, I said SOMETIMES, plus I knit English) and she wants to hold the needles and will occasionally grab them and do it wrong.
I want to teach her but how?
