Robyn has started knitting little animals. She started with a bunny and she has made several of them. She knitted her first bunny for Jonathan and he kept it with him all through his treatment. She made bunnies for his parents for Christmas and is now knitting another for her art teacher, who just had a baby. She is so creative. She adapted the pattern and knitted a fox for herself. It turned out great. The tail is wonderful as she used to different types of yarn (one fuzzy and the other regular) to give it a fluffy look. Nana taught her how to knit several years ago, but it was only the basic knit and purl type of thing. These patterns require increasing, decreasing and probably several additional maneuvers. She looked up videos on how to do them on YouTube and jumped right in. I need to do more of that.
