Finger Knitting and Praying

Rachel has really taken to the idea of praying through doing and today she wanted to do some knitting.

She chose to try with her knitting doll. Again I tried to make it easy for her and again it was fiendishly fiddly and difficult for both of us. Who likes these things?

Rather than give up I suggested teaching her finger knitting; the four wide knitting which makes great lengths of net style knitting. I thought it might be a bit fiddly but she got it immediately and made a long length which she's decided to use as a hair bobble.

I hadn't really noticed that she was doing anything other than knitting, but at bed time she said she had prayed for her friends and everyone she knows on each line. She also said it was "totally relaxing knitting and chatting to God" - get her! Love her!
