Big Feat- My eight year old Knits a Scarf!!

YAY!  I want to share this with you!
My 8 year old son and I have been working on this for a year- it is a merino wool and cashmere scarf- wool from Ireland (Maggie's knits).  He picked out this yarn last year and really wanted to do a stockinette knit- he was proficient at the garter knit,but I was a bit apprehensive about teaching him to purl at 7 years old.  He worked hard at it every day-and since we take a break from knitting and wool in the summer- I am quite impressed that it is now finished.  We are now starting on a hat- with ribbing- knitting it in the round!  He picked out a glorious grey cashmere/merino blend from Debbie Bliss yarns.  I hope this inspires you to get your little ones left and right brain working!! On a side note- has left his medieval flute and has been working hard at piano with me.  He can do left and right hand scales proficiently up until D scale which has two flats- I have the Waldorf knitting, flute and glockenspiel to thank for this accomplishment!
