Hello, Emily here. I am going to tell you about learning to knit. My mum taught me recently, and I love it.
I am almost nine years old. I like making lots of different things, and I always want to make things for other people, to make them happy. I decided, because I saw my mum knitting that I wanted to learn. She said she would teach me, but that I would have to be patient and careful, and pratice and not get too cross if I made a mistake (she said that everyone learns to knit that way, and making mistakes happens a lot, even when she knits and she has been knitting since she was 11)
So, she showed me how to knit. I can do lots of sticthces, and am gettting really good at counting them, and I write down how many rows I make, in a special notepad my mum gave me, and I like finding time to knit a few rows. My mum says learning to do the simple stitches and small things is good, and as I get faster and better, she will teach me more. She also says I am getting very neat and good at knitting.
I am making a special blanket of squares that my mum will help me sew together, for a baby we know, called Cleo and I am also helping my mum to knit squares for blankets to send to some families who need them.
I love knitting. I can’t wait to see what my blanket looks like when it is finished.
Me, concentrating hard to get my stitches neat and even, Mum says that’s important or what you knit looks messy. She is helping to practice and get the stitches neat and work on something called tension, which helps. I am looking forward to making more things when I am faster at knitting.
Is learning to knit something you would like to do or are you already really good at it?
