Something new on the needles, in a lovely shade of green.
No, it's not mine. It belongs to the newest knitter in the house. She decided to keep it in this bag with a zippered top to keep out the yarn thief. That silly cat.
That's wonderful that Jane has taken to knitting. I'm waiting for the day my little one is interested. And I so know about those yarn thieves. They can really reek havoc on a project.

yay! tell her my first knitting project was with that same skein of lamb's pride!

My dog is a knitting theif too! I learned that one the hard way... And Lamb's Pride is some of the best yarn to start on. She looks like she's doing great!

i love when kids get motivated to do stuff like this - my daughter's tried embroidery and quilting so far - i am no yarn person, so no knitting - at least not yet!

I can just picture you two all snuggled up on a cold day, knitting away and sharing each other's stories. Too sweet.

i see it runs in the family. knitting. and the love of the colour green.

Jane got it so quickly, she must have learned by osmosis (no wonder she chose the green yarn, probably thought it couldn't be done any other way). And Kate is doing a fine job fake knitting, too. After a few years of practicing in Imaginary Land, I'm sure she'll be a great knitter in this world, too.

Hooray for Jane!

Wow, this girl takes after her mother. And she sure is getting an early start on her design career.

very nice I can't wait for the day. Great color. I love the knitting bug that has been caught around this place. I keep meaning to blog about it but maybe some time soon...Alena also loves to 'knit' if one could call it that.
Posted by: christina | October 03, 2007 at 12:50 PM
I love it when kids show an interest in crafts. Keep it going!

First the Girls Rock shirt, and now knitting. I love that your little Jane is following in your footsteps.
Posted by: sulu-design | October 03, 2007 at 04:13 PM
Hooray Jane! I can't wait to see what she creates.
Posted by: Mama Urchin | October 03, 2007 at 05:41 PM
Jane, you have great taste just like your mama. Oh, and the shirts below are so great! I love a girl with some cockiness!
Posted by: Eren | October 03, 2007 at 08:51 PM

Posted by: Jennifer | October 03, 2007 at 09:08 PM

This is, to use a word coined by Elle, adorrid!* And what a lucky little girl she is to learn with Lamb's Pride and wooden needles!
*you've heard of horrible and horrid, so it follows that adorable would also have adorrid, right?! So, it means absolutley, perfectly adorable. Of course.

I often think your girls are so lucky to grow up in a home with such a crafty mama!
Posted by: julie | October 04, 2007 at 12:53 PM
i think it's a 'green' house effect.
Posted by: clara | October 04, 2007 at 02:38 PM
Well I'm glad this knitting thing is catchy :)
Posted by: Felicia | October 04, 2007 at 08:53 PM
Yay for Jane. I loved her t-shirt too.
Posted by: erin s | October 05, 2007 at 10:10 PM
That green is so lovely!
Smart girl keeping it away from the yarn thief:)
Posted by: Chara Michele | October 07, 2007 at 12:21 PM
Oooh, and it's Lamb's Pride, too! My favorite - probably because it's from my beloved home state. You can even see a little map of Nebraska on the label. Good for Jane! Long may she knit!!!
