Kids Knittingby Melanie Falick for remembering all the steps of the knit stitch. It goes:
Under the Fence
Catch the Sheep
Back we Come
Off we Leep
Of course, catching the sheep is a bit tricky Continental style, so we're still working on that, but I'm proud of her for learning how to cast on so readily! Learning to knit is part of the first grade syllabus for Waldorf education, a style of learning which inspires our homeschooling. I adore that handwork is part and parcel of the "official" plan.
Anyhoo, for those of you who already know how to knit and purl, Jacey has a very cool textured knit pattern to share with you today at Jaceycraft as part of Celebrate Color. She's created a downloadable scarf pattern that uses just four knit stitches.
I hope you'll stop by Jaceycraft to download your copy and take a peak around her very colorful blog! Thanks, Jacey, for sharing your creation!
And by the by, the month is still young, but don't let that lure you into twiddling those thumbs. We all know how time slips away faster than ever at this time of year. Hope to see you soon sharing your handmade projects at Celebrate Color!
