212  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What's a good age to teach children to knit? on: January 11, 2006 06:20:47 AM
I was looking for this information and found this thread.
My niece is 5 yrs old and I was thinking of teaching her how to knit.. However, I don't have any idea what size of needles she should start with.. and materials. I was thinking some plastic 9 mm needles and for her first project a hat for her dolls. (You just knit a rectangle, without BO, just pulling a thread by the live stitches and sewing on the sides).
What do you think?

(sorry, english is not my first language)

2 weeks? Ups, I started too soon then.

About the circulars advice, i did know that and I use circulars whenever I can because I like them better (I don't stick them in my friends eyes and such), but where I live circulars are too expensive, so I have more straight needles.. And use them more often..

About the way I knit, it's kind of continental, but I knit with the yarn around my neck, are you familiar with this way? I only saw people knitting with the yarn around their fingers twice, and only after discovering internet I found out that you knit this way in the USA Cheesy

I'm going to try a better posture for sure and that advice for the pillow sounds great (and I have my eyes on that glove too, too bad they don't ship internationally).

Thank you all!

Wow boygirlparty, that really helped a lot!
I'm going to the pharmacy to buy a wrist brace, I was knitting a while ago and my wrist started to hurt again Sad I guess I'm not ready yet..

I was knitting some Barbie clothing for my nice for Christmas on size 2 needles and I think that was the worst for my wrist.
I'll try some larger needles for start ando thos exercices you showed me.

First of all, thanks for all your answers. It's nice to know that our experiences can help others.

Does your wrist pop too? Mine hurts if I knit way too much and it pops constantly. Sometimes the pain travels up my arm. If my husband rubs it kind of like an Indian Burn it goes away for a while.

My wrist popped after a while too! After the first time it popped, started to hurt a lot. And yes, the ache sometimes gets to my upper arm too.. I thought of the tendonitis and the RSI, so I'm using some anti inflamatory cream.
I'll try to look for that knitters glove you mentioned and for the future i won't go mad on knitting deadlines, you're right. It isn't worth it..

Hi, I'm new around here!
By knitting as a mad the past two weeks before christmas, my wrist started to hurt. As I kept knitting insanly, it got worst, to a point that I couldn't knit anymore.
I haven't touched my needles for more than a week, today I tryed and it hurts a little.
Has this happened to you? Can I avoid this from happening again? Should I take it easy? I'm scared this pain won't go away Sad

Oh, and I'm sorry about my english, not my first language Smiley
