First Knitting Day for 1st Grade

A lovely tradition of Waldorf schools across the world is that each year the fifth graders bring the very first stitches of knitting to the first graders. It is a beautiful pairing because fifth graders are returning to knitting (for the first time since second grade) and are knitting socks at the same time the first graders are seeing knitting for the very first time. The little ones look forward to their time with the big, golden fifth graders, and it brings to the foreground a wonderful, warm part of the fifth graders as they nurture the first graders through this process. The passing on of knowledge is a moving, magical moment!
