Livie Knits 2

Last spring Livia started to knit a doll dress. I did a post on her beginning here. Well after working on it off and on she is finally to knitting the sleeves. Double Pointed needles are interesting to knit with. It took me awhile before I started to enjoy knitting with them. They are a bit fiddly but once I figured out how to hold the needles and knit at the same time it got way easier.

This morning Livie brought her knitting to me and asked me to show her how to knit the sleeves on her dolly dress. So now she is knitting on DPN and she learned a bit about picking up stitches and pulling her yarn up tight on the 2nd stitch of a new needle.

I love watching her knit. She has a real aptitude for knitting and learns new stitches and concepts fast.


  1. Way to go,Livie!
    You are awesome, I still cant knit with DPN, they scare me to death (I cant even chew gum and walk at the same time, so keeping track of 4-5 needles is like my worse nightmare)
    Cant wait to see the finished project!

  2. This is so wonderful, the fact that she is learning something from her mother to be enjoyed the rest of her life. I love her concentration!!
