There’s a reason kids are used for tasks like this. Just look at those nimble little fingers!
I was having trouble helping Child Harbat weave using a crochet hook and she found it easier to just use her fingers. Since this project was finished I now have her working on a hand-knotted silk Persian rug. I told her she can leave her room once it’s finished. I tell ya, it’s not easy being this fantastic of a parent!
