Meet my two neighbor friends. As part of their schooling, they make knitting needles out of wood (with help) and learn to knit. You can imagine how my heart melted when the older boy brought his knitting bag to my house to compare projects! He knit a hat, with some help with the decreases. Now it's the younger brother's turn. He brought his project to show me. He's knitting squares for a blanket. He and his brother developed a technique they call "tandem knitting". One works the needles, and the other throws the yarn. aaaawww.
I think I'm most impressed that neither brother has taken the pointy stick to the other!
