So i had to go into work today. My supervisor brought his daughters in with him while we were discussing the stuff we needed to research. His younger daughter always hangs out with me in my office whenever we come in on the weekends.
I had my fingerless mitts that I had recently finished in my office. His daughter Jenna age 7 saw them and fell in love. She was just too cute. She put them on and begged me to make her some. She then informed me that the teddy bear I made her is still in perfect condition so she will take excellent care of them.
So i said sure. How could I say no to someone who appreciates knitted items?
So I am doing my research while she is playing in my office and she finds my sensual Knits book. I had in my office because I copied the Vixen Camisole pattern so i wouldn't have to carry around the book. She begins to flip through and says WOW what beautiful sweaters. Seriously this kid has great taste in knitted items. She then proceeds to flag with post it notes what I should knit for myself.
She then come to the V-neck vest. She then asks if I can make that for her too. She again says she will take excellent care of it and will wear napkins when she eats so she won't stain it.
She is really tall for her age so I can actually make the smallest size for her and it will only be slightly too big so she can wear for longer. she is only 3 inches shorter than me.
Cracks me up how this 7 year old values knitted items more than some adults!!! She then said that she has been trying to teach herself how to knit ever since I made her bear but has been having trouble. HOW CUTE!!! So I will teach her the next time I see her.
Isn't amazing how kids just get it sometimes? the work that goes into knitting? So I went online and let her pick the yarn herself. She is super excited. man I just love kids sometimes. They can totally make your day. It was bad day that I had to go in on a weekend but she totally made my day but loving my knitting!!
