Knitting changes the way children think and see. It improves fine motor skill as well as gross motor skill. Knitting is calming. Long term goals in today's slap-dash world is a game changer.
Children learn to listen to instruction, implement instruction and clearly see a pattern. When children learn to knit beautifully, and they all do, they are able to experience beauty. Creating, designing and thinking are all tasks that will serve children long after elementary school. The added bonus; they love the work!
