Review Highlights:

This is a great starter knitting kit for children. I have always found knitting to be a great skill for kids in several ways. First, its very practical. Knitting is also a great eye-hand coordination and small motor skills exercise. Pattern recognition and sequencing of steps is another important aspect of learning to knit that crosses over with academic skills. Focus, concentration, and eventually relaxation are other great benefits of knitting. Alex's Knit & Wear is a great kit of colorful yarn and big needles to start the process. Larger needles help to see the pattern of stitch better as well as gaining satisfaction of completing a project sooner. I like that the needles are identified with different colored knobs. This helps with instruction. The online video is much preferred over written instruction.
