Lizzie update: She's been taking the train to San Francisco and we've had some great visits. She just left, following New Years', when she finished her fourth project, this hat:

Taught herself Fair Isle. No ladders. Even tension. No puckering floats. She's like some weird knitting prodigy. My sister and I were talking about it, and my sister says Lizzie has one of the highest scores in her age group at school for, well, I don't know what they call it, but spacial understanding and intuitive grasping of structure. She'd probably make a great engineer.

If she keeps this up, in three years, she will be teaching me.

I am proud, Flicka, and having a lot of fun. I only hope she keeps it up. SO much of her energy is going into boys, social life, and growing up way too fast. I'm hoping the knitting can be a balancing influence on her.

I don't remember reading the original post about this, robinsteph, but I am so happy you updated it. What a delightful Thanksgiving that was (I could've used one like that but you just gave it to me) and how lovely that your niece is maintaining contact and continuing the knitting! I just remembered why I keep coming back to read posts on KR (I don't post, usually, so this is the first in a long time).

How do.

Robin, how cool is this! And how in the sam heck did I miss your beautiful story, complete w/pictures due to your wonderful writing style, the 1st time around? Lucky for us KR Forum folks, you have given us an update.

The muscle memory of your T'givng, the road trip to the LYS & the common ground you all stood on during T'giving - all of this gave you all a sweet spot that was shared & has given you all something to speak of which can be helpful when issues in a family have caused strife.

How lucky Lizzie is to have you as an Aunt - I bet you are a fave aunt too. You opened up a world to her, honey, so give yourself a high 5 for me please.

xoxo to you,
Martha
