No doubt about it...

When she grows up, Rachel is SO going to be a yarn ho, just like her mama!!

Some might say "yes well.. but you're a knitter! So when you're with a child, the child is SURROUNDED with knitting paraphenalia, yarn, craft cards etc.. So of course the child will play with them!" But noooo.. I'm afraid that point is invalid, as whenever and where ever we play I put out all sorts of exciting toys: her doll Sally, an envelope, pillow case, pencil case, brightly colours hat etc... and she always makes a bee line for the yarn! Even when I'm not playing with it!
Case closed!
