My 9 yo has been playing around with knitting off and on for a couple of years, but has yet to complete anything. My 7yo finally decided she wanted to learn...so off she goes with some sugar 'n cream multi-colored, and 10 stitches cast on. She's now about 2 inches into her "scarf."
So the younger one shows her project to the 9yo, who says, "That's pretty good for a beginner!"
7yo says indignantly, "I'm NOT a beginner! This is my THIRD day of knitting!"
