Knit Together was born out of my struggle to balance my desire to
create with my busy life as a working mother of four. I am challenging
myself to do something creative WITH my children each week and to share
that adventure with you on Mondays. I invite you to share your
creativity with your children so that we might inspire each other with
ideas to help "knit our hearts together."
If you want to join me, write a blog
post about something creative you did with kids and share your link in
the comments. No rules really, only that your link is current and
something about creating with children. They don't even have to be your
own kids. Please remember to link back to The Gauge Wars so that others
who may want to join can find it. Pretty simple. Your post can be from
any day of the week. It doesn't have to be Monday. Thank you for
Doesn't this picture make every knitting mom happy?
Maeve has been choosing a 10 minute knitting lesson out of her mystery
motivation bag fairly regularly. She was able to pick two envelopes a
day, one for doing her chores and one for practicing her violin without
whining, until we had to turn in her rented violin this week. She
actually told me yesterday she wished she had her violin back. I thought
finally she was going to admit that she really liked playing it but no,
it was because she like picking two envelopes a day. Oh well. One can dream.
has been working on this little bit of knitting for awhile. She enjoys
it for small amounts of time so the 10 minute lesson is just about
perfect. We recently figured out what she can make with it so that has increased
her motivation to finish it. Maeve's been playing with her doll house a
lot and this little afghan will be a welcome addition to the home.
