Knitting/Reading for Five-Year-Olds


What's not in the picture:

- The knitting needles in the top of the unfinished hat.

- The other 14 books in the very-late-to-arrive birthday present.

- The hissy-fit she had while I tried to take the picture.

- The hissy-fit I had while I tried to take the picture.

- The unwell little sister, wailing, off to the right.

- The big pile of hats being made inspired by that texture. Next week, I hope.

Joining in with the Yarn Along.

And now I have to go and work out how this hat ends...

  1. I love this! People often say to me when I'm out with the kids,"you make it look so easy, they're adorable!" if only they knew about the hissy fits that happen on a daily basis in our house!

  6. I am always impressed with the calm in a photo especially when I know it is like my house and usually a bit crazy. Hope little sister feels better soon. Great hat!

  14. Yea, that's what it looks like around here too often, outside of the photos :)
    Hope everyone is feeling much better.
    We are working our way through a Roald Dahl story collection on CD (more to my benefit than of the little guy's for now, I think) - great fun!

  15. Oh, Greer! I feel for you while at the same time...I chuckle. Yes, I've been there. Hissy fits, uncooperative children, needles sticking out of 'finished' projects (not needles here, but ends that haven't been woven in because "I've run out of time and need to get a photo of some sort for the yarn along"...

  18. Ha, brilliant! I love a well cropped picture! Always take many well-cropped shots in my house with piles of washing/snotty tissues/screaming toddlers well out of camera range! x

  19. Ahhh, hissy fits. Those are so fun.

    I love Roald Dahl so much. The "Fantastic Mr. Fox" movie is darn good too (Wes Anderson version from a few years ago).
