The local elementary school called and asked me if I could come in and teach a group of 2nd graders (7 and 8 year olds) how to knit. So far 3 kids are signed up (2 boys and a girl). The group will be max'd out at 6. The classroom teacher is providing worsted weight yarn and size 8 or 9 needles. Last time I did this, the teacher came over to "help." The problem with her help is that she's a thrower and I'm a picker. I'm ready this time though, as I've been working on throwing all morning, and I think I've got the hang of it enough to show a bunch of kids how to do it. It's kind of fun to be trying something so new and yet so basic, but I can't see myself switching for good. I can't wait to see how things go with the kids this afternoon. Here goes nothin'!
