This is the way we knit a hat, knit a hat, knit a hat....

The Big Apple decided that she would like to try knitting. The only kind of knitting that I know how to do is on these loom things...so I own them in almost every size there is. She decided that she would like to try making a hat first, and then next, perhaps a scarf or two.

We bought some clearance yarn from Walmart for $1 out of her own money because she LOVED the color. It's a rough texture, but we can work with some nicer cotton yarn next time.

She figured out the steps to knitting VERY quickly, and I barely had to help her at all. She even asked if she could sit up and knit instead of having her regular movie at bedtime. I was only happy to oblige.

This is the finished product. She's very pleased with it. She wants to sell hats to earn money to buy herself her first American Girl Doll. This hat was for sale for $50, she said. But she was willing to sell it to me for the bargain price of $30, since I was her mom and all.
I think I got a great bargain.
