2 nights ago, i started teaching dot to knit. she was having difficulty casting on. (what beginner doesn't?) she stumbled through her first row of stitches before i sent her off to bed. the next day, she brought her project in the car with her to work on while driving to school. in 20 minutes, she had finished one row of 14 stitches. she said she wished she could work on it in school. on the way home - another row. i had to make sure she got her homework done before working on it some more. today it was the same thing, but she's getting faster. two rows on the way to school. i don't know why it's so exciting to me that she likes knitting, but it is. i just learned last summer from my mom - who had just recently picked it up herself. well, there you go.
a recent trip to busch gardens resulted in some beautiful tiger pics. yes, i took these.
