It might be that the entire point of this post is to share this photo:
Meet Alice. Alice is six and her Nonna taught her to knit. Alice's mother Jayne and I have been friends since school, and, since her daughter was learning to knit Jayne thought she should learn too, so she can help. On Sunday we took a trip to Wool Baa, and then sat around in a cafe. I taught Jayne how to knit continental and how to purl. Later that evening she emailed a photo of her progress to me:
I think she's going to be good at this!
