having learned the skill in his waldorf kindergarten, odin has been finger knitting for some time, making nice little bracelets for mother’s day and whatnot. those were single-strand crafts, but now that he’s in first grade, he has apparently graduated to advanced finger knitting which involves wrapping yarn through around all the fingers to make multiple rows simultaneously.
he was kind enough to try and teach me, but we has some troubles with left handed/right handed conversion and my general inability to keep track of The Correct Order of Steps.
a bit exasperated, he eventually gave up and said that it would probably be easier to teach mama how do it first and then maybe she could teach me ( although he was clearly skeptical that even she would be able to get it through my thick skull ).
sigh. the facade of infallibility cracked by finger knitting.
