This is a picture of my grandson Quinn, who is 9 and in grade 4. The teacher decided they were going to knit scarves. My grandson and other boys tried but couldn't master knitting. The teacher mostly gave up on the project. My grandson wanted a scarf and asked me if I could knit. I have rarely knitted and only do the basic stitches. So one afternoon while Quinn was visting I knitted the scarf. Quinn was playing games but kept checking on how I was doing. I really didn't think he would wear it that much but he has and he wants me to knit him another one. I'm going to make him one next winter and probably one for Christmas. He was so happy and pleased with the scarf that he wore it in the classroom all day and made good use of it through the winter. Right now we are having a cold spell and he is wearing it again. In the first picture is how he usually wears it wrapped a few time around his neck. I'm glad that Quinn still gets so excited about the little things in life.
