My dear friend Mary came over again last week to teach my little girls and me how to knit the purl stitch. She is such a kind and devoted friend and her children are absolutely wonderful. Her daughter is so sweet to take the time to teach little Maria how to knit the Knit stitch. Mary drives over 45 minutes to get here and usually stays for about 2 hours, which is never long enough. We really enjoy their company and I always learn so much from her. She let us borrrow some really nice bamboo needles and some really awesome knitting books. We are so incredibly blessed to have her living here so close to us.
Here is my little Maria knitting all by herself. I'm so proud of her and Angela for picking it up so fast. Unfortunately, I injured my finger a few days before and I wasn't able to knit at all until a few days later. I hope we'll be able to get together sometime this month so I can learn a few more knitting stitches. In the meantime, I'll continue to work on a scarf and maybe finish it before winter ends. :)
