My Take on this Kit
Alex Toys sent a box of colorful and fuzzy yarns, two knitting needles , and sewing needle and a booklet of directions in a colorful metal storage case. My oldest daughter and I sat down with the yarn and directions and proceeded to follow the excellent directions and begin a project in the booklet. She was going to make a headband.

The directions were not only written, but had illustrations too. There was a web site you could use for video directions too.

The booklet included projects for: bows, headbands, gloves , a purse, and directions for making tassels and pom-poms. There were explicit directions for knitting-casting on, the knit stitch, and casting off. Another section showed how to fix mistakes and changing colors. Once these basics are learned , there would be many booklets your child would be able to use to make more advanced projects.

The yarn was thick, colorful and fuzzy. It will make great projects. With summer here there is time to explore crafts in depth and knitting is something my oldest daughter has wanted to learn.

If you are looking for a gift for a child who enjoys crafts, this may be one to think about seriously.
