the sweet, simple things of life
which are the real ones after all."
~ Laura Ingalls Wilder
Hi, I am Emerson and I wanted to share
my knitting with you today.
I am staying with my Olie [Long O : Lee],
Pappy and Uncle Alex while my mom,
and Daddy are in Charleston for a few days.
On Monday I asked my Olie to teach me
to knit because I always see her knitting
and I wanted to learn.
Even though she is left handed and I
am right handed, we finally got it worked
out, Olie put the yarn on the needle for me
and I knit each stitch. I keep saying the
knitting poem and that helps me a lot.
I am knitting a blanket for my horses.
I think knitting is fun!
My Olie is working on a hat for me, it
is a test pattern for Mrs. Ginny. My Olie
wanted to knit it in purple yarn to match
the pullover she is knitting me, but I
picked red because it is one of my favorite
Together we are reading Little House in the Big Woods,
and we both like it a lot.
We had fun sitting outside in the shade knitting and
reading, but it was a little hot and then it started
to thunder so we ran back to the house.
Thank you and goodbye!
