We began with the old rhyme while I moved both her hands and needles. By the end of the day, all I had to do was wrap the yarn around the needles while she recited, "In the door, around the back, through the window, off jumps Jack!" We worked on it every day during their visit, and I am quite proud of her progress! My SIL also asked for instruction so that she could help her daughter once they got home, so I not-so-sneakily expanded the knitting world by not just one, but two!
My girls had to help.
