I thought that my little niece who is almost 8 months old was suddenly interested in my knitting. She is learning to locomote very well under her own power and she worked hard (and fast) to get over to my knitting (which admittedly I left on the floor) while I was in the other room (for about 3 seconds).
She is an adorable kid if I do say so myself. Maybe one day she will learn to knit. I can't wait to see what she does with my piano (when I get it out of piano-jail that is).
(Little knitting hint: those zipper bags that bed linens sometimes come in are great for knitting projects. Especially if you're like me and have many of them going at once. I think these particular bags were from some thermal curtains. Sometimes I'll buy one product over the other just because of the plastic bag it comes in.)
