Kirven made knitting needles, and we've done the story cycle for introducing knitting. He's got casting on down pat, but I think knitting will take a bit longer for him to get the hang of.
Making the needles was suprisingly easy! It's just a 1/4" dowel rod cut in quarters, and then sharpened with a pencil sharpener! We sanded the points a little duller with fine sandpaper, but it didn't take much. And then we made decorative ends out of sculpey clay, baked those, and wood glued them onto the ends. I think I'll go into business making adorable knitting needles.
