Our Kids Knitters are so creative!  Marie Alms, our lovely Knitting For All teacher in Solihull, thought you’d like to meet Thomas Baumber, one of her keen Kids Knit students. 

Hi Thomas!

How old are you? I am 8 years old.  

What’s your favourite hobby?  My favourite hobby is knitting because it is calming and good for de-stressing. 

What do you like most about Kids Knit?  The best bit about Kids Knit classes is chatting with friends.

What’s been the hardest part about earning to knit?  I found casting on the most difficult when I started to learn to knit.

What’s the best thing about knitting?  I love learning new things.

What achievements are you most proud of?  I am most proud of my dragon tail scarf and my fair isle coasters – the scarf because it needs concentration and the coasters because they were challenging.

What are you going to knit next?  I am planning to start a Minecraft hat next and am working on a daisy bag to give to a friend at school. I would like to learn box stitch in future.

What do you want to be when you grow up?  I would like to be an actor when I grow up.

Thanks Thomas!
