knitting for kids
I made this for E for Christmas. It is the Tasha Tutor shawl knit in Cascade 220 Superwash. I Ravel it here. I bought the yarn at the Woolly Bully in Tallahassee, FL this summer. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it at first but then my mother asked me to help her along with the edging and I just knew I had to make it for her.
I worked on it off and on for awhile. I finally finished it on the 17 hour drive down to my parents. I think I like best the way it really is holding up well. The yarn looks great even after it has been dragged across the floor of an elementary school, dragged on and off a bus, and finally down the street to our house. She has used it to carry dolls around the house and to snuggle up on the couch.
This is why we knit these things; to wrap them in our warmth even though we aren't there.
I love that she loves it!
