knit for good show -n-tell

This first picture is for those of you who want to knit, but lack a little confidence. Meet the two newest knitters in the Snickerdoodle household:


My sister Kaley (and live-in nanny for two more weeks!)
and my 6 year-old, Lincoln.


If a six year-old can learn how, so can you. If you've been trying to work up the courage to learn, hitch up your britches and get to it!

How's that for a pep talk?


And now, my first little Knit For Good cap. It's teeny, but teeny babies are born every day, right?

(I totally broke my first knitting commandment: Thou shalt knit a gauge swatch before thou beginnest a project. Oops!)


Be sure to take a quick look at the flickr group to see the great caps our Snickerdoodle friends are putting out there. I want to send an extra special shout out to those who have contributed so far: jajvennett (11 hats!), angelapea (4 hats!), and wolfcreeker (1 super-de-duper cute hat!).

Thank you, and keep 'em coming!

P.S. A non-knitting-related show-n-tell: the quilt in the background of my pictures was a gift for sweet Stella from the kind and ever-talented Amy. (Her Mr. is a friend and co-worker of my Mr.) It's made up of scraps from her vintage sheet collection and it might just be the most beautiful thing I've ever laid eyes on.

Your little striped hat is so adorable!

Someday I'm going to learn how to knit! It's encouraging to know a six-year-old can do it. :) Someday I too will succeed!
