I think I could knit again when Emily was about four years old. I quickly learned she was obsessed with my circular knitting needles and I always have to keep them stashed away. When one wore out on me I gave it to her but she didn't play with it. I think the fun for her is trying to steal them from me.
She's fairly good about my knitting, although she likes to lie on whatever pattern I'm trying to follow. Here I gave her an opportunity to be naughty, but she wouldn't be.
I've learned that she loves to knead yarn, the nicer the better. I have to stow it away as soon as possible. That's some Sliver Moon merino in Spring Mist she found there.
