Boys Can Knit. Fact.

Lucas loves knitting

This is Lucas, aged 8, and his mum  has sent us a lovely picture of the amazing scarf he is knitting. Lucas goes to a knitting club  at school and he started the scarf with wool in his Buttonbag Knitting kit. He needed some more yellow and red to finish the scarf and when we saw the picture we were more than happy to send him some extra supplies.

Lucas, we think  you are an extremely talented knitter and we can’t wait to see a picture of the finished scarf. Well done and keep clicking away.
