Default Learn to Knit CD

Can anyone tell me of a good Learn-to-knit CD? My 8 year old neice wants to
learn to knit, and because we don't live near each other, I have been
putting her off. BUt I thought that if I could get her started and then send
her home with a CD for her computer, she would be able to manage on her own
until our next visit. Thanks for any suggestions.
Brenda

Brenda,
If your neice has online access, she could try looking at the instructions
at:

Knitting Made Easy from Coats & Clark is pretty helpful. I got mine at
AC Moore, but I think the Herschnerrs has them, too.

I can't speak about the CDs, but I bought a learn to knit kit(Baby Booties
and hat - lion brand), and I learned very easily. It comes with a pattern,
small learn to knit booklet, yarn, needles, and weaving needle. They also
have scarves, and a hat and scarf kit.
Don't know if that helps
