It's hard to knit unless you have a teacher who's good at it, like my sisters (who had a good teacher, too—my grandma). They had a lot of experience—they knew what to do and how to do it.
They got me some yarn and needles for my fifth birthday. Last fall I started with a washcloth for Mom. I got frustrated a lot of times because I looked at the girls and they went way faster and so I didn't like how slow I was going. And I made a lot of mistakes, but of course that's just what happens when you're a beginner. I didn't know that's what happens when you're a beginner and don't know much.
I went to Grandma's house and I only had fourteen more rows to knit. I was very excited. When I finished it I took it home and Ella saw it and she said I did one less row than I should have done. I gave it to Mom and she said she liked it very much. Right now I'm working on a pair of socks.
