and got them both knitting lessons at my LYS - I bought them needles and yarn and now have them knitting away!!! They caught on so fast and they are ages 12 & 14! One of the girls are on thier way to Hawaii for ten days and she told me she has plans on knitting on the flight

I am so proud!

Goodluck with that with your kids!

"My girls" are very craft orientated - they always take an interest with me and my crafts... I always like to encourage them to be creative!

Vivianne, that's great your nieces are both keen to learn. There have been other posts about knitting on planes. Some airlines don't allow it, so you might want to check up for her and make sure. She would hate to have her knitting confiscated at the airport.

You should be proud, Vivianne. My niece wants to learn too but I'm not sure I'm ready for teaching anyone yet. My LYS has a knitting class for kids. I'm going to ask my brother about it and see about signing her up. I'm so new to knitting, myself, and want her to learn properly.
Congrats again!

Vivianne,
Get some bamboo or wooden circulars for your niece, and she will not have a problem at the airport.

she has bamboos and she is there safely - she called me to ask me for help cause she messed up = I told her to just keep knitting to practice and we will rip it out n do it all over again (: Bless her heart!

Kim - I know I am not ready to teach her anything except the basics - considering I am just learning myself... that's why I chose to take them down to the LYS and have them pick out their own yarns so that they could be enthusiastic about it and let the ladies take them under their wings there.
