When I was a kid I used to do a lot of needlework like cross stitch, embroidery, needlepoint, etc. I had always wanted to knit and thought it would be fun to learn with my dd. She is showing a lot of interest in knitting and sewing and has been beginning to learn sewing in school. My dd is only 5 but has good motor skills for her age. Most of the knitting kits I see say somewhere between 6-9+. I'm worried she may be a little too young. Since I have no real experience I'm not sure. I have looked at some books and think she should be able to pull off finger knitting at least.
What is a good age to begin?
