difficult child got a knitting kit from a crafts store and the instructions were very hard to follow and I am decidedly challenged when it comes to anything involving thread. I found a yarn shop that offered knitting classes, but then "the event" happened and it got put on hold. difficult child got online over the weekend and found a free "how to" knitting video. She has taught herself how to cast on and she's knitting! She is still struggling with binding off, but I'm sure she'll get it. It took her a couple of hours to master the casting on and the knitting, but she's knitted a couple of rows! She's so proud of herself! I can see this being a great therapeutic tool for her anxiety.
