little knitter

My emergency babysitting (kid watching really) yeilded an unexpected result. Samantha, "almost 9", knit three rows on the blanket I'm making for her new little sister Alex. Two purl rows, and one knit row, only breaking long enough for me to do the border stitching. 3 rows! And I'm not even going to rip out and re-do! What's more, I forgot to mark them before I continued and now I can't tell where she worked versus my work.

So now Sam can tell Alex she helped knit her blanket..

What's more... Sam doesn't have any distaste for the purl stitch versus the knit stitch, and in fact, says it's easier. *giggle*

Had to share.
