Dear Family & Friends
My ambition once before was to teach my little girls knitting, but I have one big problem...I do not know how to knit myself. I tried learning, but it just doesn't work with me, although I can crochet.

Eventually, we seek help from people who knew how to... it's not one of those things that you learn and be good at instantly. We had to refer to many many you tube tutorials, before we got it right.

In our house, we like crafting specially during winter season when we find ourselves indoor. While the garden is on dormant mode, I keep my two hands busy with crochet and even tried hand quilting.
|multi-tasking: knitting and baby sitting at the same time|
Whatever a mother does, little daughters always take note. This little girl here was mimicking her mother...she was knitting at the same time looking after her baby (doll).
|Dolly got a homemade knitted hat and scarf|
As you can see, in the end, her baby (doll) earned a knitted winter hat and a scarf. It was not perfectly knitted...but it was a good start for a 9 years old. Now as teenagers, they still knit for winter interest...but this time, they make fashionable scarf or hats for themselves:) As for me, I am still not good at knitting...so I continue on with crocheting:)
Well, whatever you are good at, aim for that and just keep your hands busy. Most of all, enjoy what you are working on and have a lovely day!
