We had a busy Thanksgiving weekend. On Thanksgiving Day my brothers and their families came up to my mom's for dinner. My niece Maggie (who's 8) asked me to teach her to knit. I went out Friday to get some needles and yarn since we were going down to my brother's house in Plainfield on Saturday for Erin's birthday. Erin turned 10 this week, she is Maggie's older sister. So here are some pictures of Maggie's first knitting lesson and of Erin in her birthday hat and felted daypack. I taught Erin and Maggie the knit stitch, and they both caught on pretty quickly. I hope they are able to do some more knitting before I see them in Disney World!
