Yarn? What Yarn?

I've had young knitters before, but this little guy Micah, at 7 months old, is definitely the youngest. At first he denied his interest in yarn.

But while his mom and friend shopped, he began playing with the yarn. Within a few minutes, it looked like he had taught himself to finger knit. His mom was not necessarily pleased to discover this. And Micah was definitely not interested in giving up the yarn!

The inevitable tug-of-war ensued, a game I have witnessed many times in my shop. Micah thought that was even more fun than knitting.

Obviously, he didn't get the seriousness of the matter.

Well, that's a 7-month old for you.

  1. I was in the store when Micah first discovered his new friend - Mr. Yarn Ball! and I can share that he was absolutely "one with the yarn" - touching it, unwinding it, tasting it and all around in love with it! It could be he will grow up to be in love with colors and textures and may very well be the next Picasso!
