This Moment - Tower "Knitting"

{this moment} - A Friday ritual inspired by SouleMama.  A single photo capturing a moment from the week.  A simple, special, extraordinary moment.  A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Miss Intrepid has been watching E2B and Princess Wonder churn out lovely creations over the last few days using knitting towers that they received several years ago (I believe that the Easter Bunny left them in their baskets) and eagerly asking...and asking, and asking, and asking...when she was going to get the chance to knit, too.  Inspired by this post over at Jonah Lisa Land, I made Miss Intrepid her own tower using a plastic plumbing connector from the hardware store, popsicle sticks, and electrical tape.  I started her out and offered to help, but she wanted - as do most independent three year olds - to do it herself.  Her finished product looks an awful lot like yarn wrapped around and around the outside of the tower, but after some Mommy intervention I hope to be able to leave her with a bracelet or headband.

"Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either."  ~Elizabeth Zimmermann
