Out-of-Doors in Outer

September 18, 2012

A fun family activity, Situpons.

Growing up, I was a Girl Scout (I loved selling cookies!), so when Colleen and Sarah showed me their design collaboration, I couldn’t help but exclaim, “Situpons!” My troop made Situpons for many occasions, but most frequently for overnight camping trips with time spent around a fire. These colorful, round mats are suited to so many spots–I have a few for the chairs on my balcony that were made by two little girls I babysit!

Whenever they see me knit they want to try it, too! They aren’t quite ready yet to take on needles, but their little fingers quickly got the hang of making I-cord on a spool knitter. When they came home from a recent vacation (complete with first airplane ride!), their mom was certain they had enough I-cord to stretch twice across every state they flew over. I was able to make three Situpons with their I-cord, and next time my sweet little charges came over, we sat upon the Situpons and marveled at how they are already Knitters!
