Are you like me and have a daughter or daughters that want to learn a new craft? Do you not have time or the patience to teach them. Here is something for you to check out.
My nine-year old daughter has been wanting to learn to knit ever since I started to knit myself. We have recently purchased a knitting loom that is like the one pictured below. This is one of the best things to buy and relatively cheap way to get them started. The only thing that you would need is some yarn but it teaches them how to make hats, with the 4 different size plastic rings. This is a great gift idea for even adults wanting to learn to knit without fooling with the different knitting needles. There is a hook style needle that comes with it, and you can also buy an instruction/pattern book to go along with the kit. I have seen this in some stores for as much as $30 dollars, but I only spent the $14 on it since I didn’t want to invest in the high-end kits for a nine-year old. This can even be used to make hats for infants.
