Knitting Lessons

Mr. S has been pretending to knit for months now, and I hadn't any intentions of showing him just how to do so until he's a little older. I don't think a four-year-old has the fine motors skills to grasp knitting and purling just yet, at least not my four-year-old. But today he asked me how I get my yarn flat, and he took a skein of yarn and tried to smoosh it against the table.

So I cast-on a few stitches for him and showed him how to knit a few...

Then I watched him swirl the yarn around like pasta...

His finished object: a sailboat
