11/02 Evan weaving for the first time on the vintage Hasbro Weave-Rite loom we bought at an antique store.  Mom got the warp all straightened, and then the loom worked fine.  Evan choose some blue and blue variegated/camo yarn to weave.

10/02  Evan and his Fun and Funky Hat.  Mom knit the basic yellow hat, and Evan spool knit all the I-cord tassels for it, using all sorts of fun colors of leftover yarns.  A fun joint effort!

4/02  Evan and his very first FO! (Finished Object, in KnitList speak) 9 Years old.  His first ever real knitting (aka non-spool knitting done on straight needles), that started out about 2 YEARS ago (about) as a practice swatch, and every now and then he'd pick it up and do a row.  Now, he did a few more rows, and then asked how to finish it off, so Mom showed him how to cast off, and he picked up on it so fast that it was done and off his needles in no time.  He then took his rectangle and folded it half, and sewed up two sides, then stuffed it with cotton balls, and finished sewing it closed all by himself!  He turned it into a pillow for a stuffed kitty of his.  Mom's so proud she could burst!  This is an FO that will always be treasured!  At least by his mom!
