    I think loads of children struggle to learn to knit – I did and trying to teach my granddaughter I realised why! Well done for introducing her to such useful skills – it is so important to share our passions with our youngsters even if they go on to develop different ones.

      Sue – I doubt she has ever knitted again since those early lessons but she does weave occasionally. I only want them to appreciate things made by hand whatever they are.

        I think that is my aim too – that they know how much work goes into making something even if it is machine made and therefore that a garment sold cheap means exploitation somewhere.

        Sue – I really want to pass on the respect for things handmade, commercial/ factory made “stuff” – textiles and anything else is a whole different issue.
