Summer fun: teach crafty kids to knit!

Martingale's Knit and Crochet Friday

From Knitting with GigiWhat’s on your kids’ summer bucket list?

No doubt you’ve got plenty of plans for pool days, trips to the zoo, and lots of outdoor fun. But you might also need something to do when your kids (and you!) need a respite from summer frolicking.

Why not teach them to knit—with help from Gigi? Knitting with Gigi is a kids’ knitting book that combines kid-friendly how-to with fun pictures, stories, and poems. Once your kids have mastered knitting, they can learn to purl with Gigi Knits and Purls.
