May 21  E3 has been asking over and over to learn how to knit.  Since it requires more fine motor skills than a three year old possesses, I hadn’t figured out to honor that request without her and me getting incredibly frustrated.  For some reason I had forgotten about the round loom set we had bought when E2 had also been too young to join in on the knitting family time.

So I pulled out a loom and a skein of soft acrylic yarn (pink, of course) and showed her how to wrap and then lift the loops over.  She picked up on it right away, and she actually got in a couple of rounds before it lost her attention and she ran off to play something else.
