Happy CityKid Knitted a Belt

Saturday, October 22nd, 2005

On Thursday, one of my new knitters brought me her project. It had started out as a wristband but when she had knit a while she decided she did not want to stop. She thought maybe she’d like a headband. OK, go for it, I said!

So the next day here she was with her project, she had knit until her smallish ball of yarn had no more left to give her. It was too long even for a headband. It looked to me like a very short belt. It’s a pastel rainbow, just beautiful in garter fabric (5 stitches wide).

So I taught her how to bind off and she learned how to make fringe (with yarn I happened to still have in the room, which matched her knitting yarn perfectly). The fringe made it just long enough to truly work great as a belt.

And doesn’t she look beautiful and happy? I’m sure you can see why I love teaching these kids!!!
