I'm scheduled to teach a group of 4th graders how to knit, starting next week. These kids are giving up recess to take a class in knitting, karate, scrapbooking, fleece-blanket-making or yoga. I'll have about 20-30 minutes per class and 5 weeks to teach them how to cast-on, knit, purl and bind-off. I had asked for a maximum of six students, but they forgot to mention that in the advertisement. I had a bad dream last night that a huge group showed up, it was utter chaos, and I couldn't get anyone's attention!
I'm excited, though. I'm putting together my materials and knitting up some "samples" this weekend. I can't wait to pass along this wonderful skill to the next generation! I already had one mom tell me her daughter is really excited and is hoping she gets into the class!
