Knit Over

I had a knit over with my six year old niece Friday night. It was so fun. She's all about learning how to knit and of course is already obsessed like me!

All she wanted to do was knit, knit, knit. We knit all night and all morning and we finished a scarf together. She would knit a couple rows and then I would knit one and if there were any mistakes I'd fix them - it was a good method.Then we made this flag/banner type thing out of the book I got her (FYI - it's a great book for kids to learn how to knit - check it out here).She learned how to cast on and bind off and I'm so impressed at how well she is doing!Isn't it so cute?!

I need a niece to knit with! I love the flags, they'd look so cute in a young lady's room.
