Passing on my love of Crafting

My granddaughters are 6, 5 and 4 now.  And though they have always crafted with me, they are now getting to the age that I can teach them to do things all by themselves.  Last night I taught my 5 year old how to finger knit a scarf that she can wear this winter.   I showed her how to cast on her fingers and then helped her with the first two rows.  After that, she had it down pat and didn't need or WANT any more help!!! lol So I just let her go at it and watched her carefully.  She is such a quick learner!  Within an hour she had a very long piece completed before deciding she was sleepy and it could wait until morning.  So, I marked her stitches so she could resume in the morning.  She woke up this morning and the first thing she said was , "I wanna finish my scarf grammy!"  Wow, before breakfast even...and she did.  Here she is at beginning, midway and finished product!.  I am so proud of her! :)
