Like Mother Like Daughter

Last week, Mary Beth wrote about her young daughter knitting scarves with 2 strands Paton's Divine. I showed the picture to Kaity. On Friday, she asked her dad to take us to the craft store in West Virginia, so she could get some too. She chose a medium blue/white and a mix of pink/peach/orange declaring, "It's very tropical". She's moving right along on size 17 needles.

I'm so happy my daughter is beginning to enjoy fiber arts! I envision us knitting together for her children.

I think Kaity is doing extremely well! My daughter learned to knit when she was 7 but stick to, I really hope Kaity goes on to do lots of fibery things with her Mom.

Kaity, that's gorgeous. You will have the prettiest scarf in Ohio. You're right. It does look very tropical.

Beautiful job, Kaity! My youngest son used to knit too.

You're going to enjoy that scarf.

Cool knitting! Pretty soon you can teach my daughter to knit! (She thinks it's too hard)

How thrilling to see the love of handwork being passed from mother to daughter.
I can almost visualize your two hearts being knitted together with a sense of wonder and shared joy.
Kaity, keep trying to learn everything that your Mother can teach you.
Someday you'll realize the special place your Mother will have in your heart as you treasure the memories - and your completed projects - the two of you have created.
