Teaching

I thought I’d post something completely different.  We started our knitting club yesterday.  Over the next four weeks five crazed teachers will try to teach a group of fourth and fifth graders how to knit.  We collected a bunch of donated yarn and bought some needles.  We decided not to teach them how to cast on, just yet.  We thought they would be more interested in the actually knitting.  After all watching their piece grow is the initial fun.  Might I just say the whole experience was rewarding and very, very interesting.  It was fun to watch how each student held their needles, some were knitting soooo tight and some were soooo loose.  I can’t wait to see what they bring us back next week!
