Our last class in November was a complete hoot! Everyone had so much fun!
We had lots of spool knitting. I remember enjoying this so much as a kid, but was unsure of how it would be received by my students. Well, I should not have been worried, they love it! I can't wait to show them some of the animals that I have created with spool knitted strings!
We had the completion of a stuffed bear leg and also the start of the torso - this student is well on her way to having a finished project!
This student wanted to try something a little different - she chose to knit a scarf with sock yarn and US#1 needles. Boy is she brave!! I love knitting on the smaller needles with fine yarn, but it does take a bit longer than if larger needles and yarn were being used. It sure is pretty though!
We also had finger weaving.
My daughter showed up and was immediately put to work by this student. This student is making a finger weave scarf and wanted to know if it was long enough so she asked my daughter to model it to check length. Looks good to me!
This student is really good at knitting and wanted to learn crochet. You know her from her crocheted shoe laces from last time, well she is now making a hair tie to learn sc and practice the tension on her chain stitches. She is doing a great job!
The scarf in one of the previous pictures, can double as a jumprope!
Did you know you can finger weave off of both ends of the ball of yarn?? Neither did I!!
