Wife, Mummy, Nurse: My Future Knitter #YarnAlong

My Future Knitter #YarnAlong

I have been trying to knit my daughter a skirt-Zagzig Skirt, but every time I pull it out, a sweet five year old comes up to ask, "Can I knit with you mama?" How can I say no to that request? Up she crawls beside me, as I patiently show her how to knit. This happened on three different days last week. At this rate, my future knitter will soon be a knitter herself. I've now been trying to pull the skirt out at night, so I can actually finish it.

What age was your child/children when they learned to knit or crochet? What are you knitting? What's on your needles? Join me at Ginny's Yarn Along.


  1. how exciting to have your daughter interested in knitting! I believe any age where they are interested is the age to teach :) I hope you do get your knitting done :)

  2. I taught both my adult daughters to knit when they were around ten years old. One is a knitter and one is not. I find teaching children knitting gets them interested in all crafts. At least in my large family it seems to be the case.

  3. Mine are still too young but hope to
    Teach them
