  8. Thanks all!

    Anybody notice that photobucket seems to think that the video of my kid is somehow related to bong use? What are people doing filming themselves, anyway?

    Still, I liked nishampjoe's bong dance :D

  12. that was really cute.

    but what I want to know is this: In the list of "related videos" after yours ended, there was someone smoking a bong. How, exactly, is that related to your cute girl?

  16. Like everyone else I thought the final lines of, "It just takes a careful, gentle touch. Now you can stop" were the best!!!!
    She is precious beyond words. Thank you for sharing.

  23. OH MY!! This is SO how my 3.5yr old would sound if she were teaching any sort of technique...too funny, that's so cute. Thanks for posting this, I was hoping to learn to finger knit to teach my daughter, I will certainly be showing her this! :)

  25. You ARE going to homeschool your little ones, I hope? Such a lovely presentation. Somehow sending them to public school seems to drain the creativity and innocence out of children.

  26. How lovely! I couldn't help but smiling the entire time. I don't know anything about knitting myself, but this is going to be a fantastic activity when we ride for 6 hours to my brother-in-laws house! Is there a way with finger knitting to connect the chains side by side (I'm thinking my daughter can make a square for a doll blanket, or a scarf), or, are chains the limit with finger knitting?

  27. Hi, I found you while I was looking for a tutorial on tiered skirt. This video is just adooooorable!
    G-d bless your lil' tutor! She is amazing and couldn't have explained it better! I never heard of finger knitting and will show it to my 4yr old today. Can you do layers like that?
    Glad to have found you.
    P.S.
    Gotta be careful with those videos. See if you can somehow protect the misuse of it... Web world is dangerous nowadays.
    Many blessings!!!
