Ready for Knitting Class
Because as of 4:00 there were 9 new knitters in it! The new year of after-school knitting has started and I have 9 girls and 4 boys eager and ready to create! Thank goodness for the four who could already knit, KnittingHelp videos, and my colleague who teaches knitting with me because we managed to get everyone knitting in under an hour!

Time will tell what arrives tommorow…

We’re doing our best to teach them about knitting with “the good stuff.” We’re starting them out with donated acrylic and then once they show they can knit they move on to Malabrigo! Yup, because of the great prices at SuperCrafty we were able to get each kid a skein of his/her own and we will set forth and make cowls!


  1. [sniff] Teachers making a difference. It does my heart proud.

  3. Wow – Malabrigo??? They aren’t going to be able to knit with anything else! What lucky kids they are….thank you for passing the craft along year after year. 🙂

  5. Okay, Beth, I’m totally blog-stalking now, but Laura friended me on Ravelry, so I found you, and now I’m reading about the malabrigo which arrived in the mail today right by my desk. So Laura and I opened it, and now the world is a better (and smaller) place, because of yarn.
