My sister is back from California, lamenting the loss of the west coast, and she came to visit philly for the day. I found a craft fair, but we never ended up going. Instead we knit at my (tiny) apartment. All this time, I thought that I was the remedial knitter in the family… turns out Alexis is really good at making squares, but hasn’t really tried for anything else. I showed her how to knit in the round, and she made a armless little green fellow for her friend. We didn’t have time for her to finish it (crochet some hair, stitch on a face) so it looked a little alien… but neatly done! Much better than the first little one I made, who is a bit lumpy and uneven.
