Here’s a fun event for kids and their parents who like to craft:
Crochet and knitting guru and Austin mom Vickie Howell will launch her book “Finger Knitting Fun” at Toms Roasting Co. at 1401 S. Congress Ave. 2-4 p.m. Sunday. She’ll teach you how to finger knit and I’m told there will be cupcakes. Howell is the host of PBS’ “Knitting Daily TV” and the spokesperson for yarnspirations.com.
Finger knitting is really a great way for kids to do something with their hands that is not tapping on an iPad or holding a game controller. My daughter got into in one summer, and yes, we had evidence of her work throughout the house, but it was one time she wasn’t glued to a screen.
