Last year we gave Amelia's friend a knitting machine for her 5th birthday and Amelia really wanted one for herself, I told her when she turned 5. So here it is... I did go ahead and buy the adult version, it just looked sturdier than the toy version.
We got right to work! Once it was all set up all you do is crank the handle and it makes a tube or you can make a flat panel. Amelia cranked, I cranked and very quickly we had a tube. I took it off the machine and then knitted the top closed and presto a hat in one day. So easy, we bought more yarn to make scarfs next! If you are on our Christmas list you might expect a new hat or scarf from the Dorsey girls!
