I never knew this as French knitting as a kid, it was always my tomboy, and for a while I carried it with me everywhere.
Tomboys are a fun hobby for kids to take up, they don't just keep kids occupied for hours, they keep them occupied for months or years.
: 10 minutes to prepare, endless hours 'knitting'
: 5-10s, Over 10s
So tomboys are fun, but can you actually do anything with them? There are actually heaps of things you can make. Check out this site
with patterns for a whole range of spool knitting projects, including this gorgeous heart
. Older girls might be interested in knitting when they find out they can make things like this braided necklace
, or they can always just aim at beating the longest tomboy record
of 26.33km. Phew!
I think we've still got a long way to go!
Let us know what creations your kids come up with, and share your decorated tomboys!
