When Chloe arrived we started the scarf but it never really got far...she knit a row I'd knit three or four. Without going into the particulars, the scarf doesn't use a regular knit stitch and was hard for her to wrap her little head around the slight change in stitch. Finally, I told her I'd just finish the scarf and send it to her.
A lesson is to be learned here:
Don't try tell a knitter what to knit - even a young one!
