I’m jumping back on board with Ginny at Small Things today. Yarn Along is always so inspiring to this knitting knovice. Maybe one day when I grow up I’ll be able to create such beautiful pieces! I just finished a two night beginning yarn class at our amazing boutique yarn store in town, Tangle. I am beyond thrilled to be living in an area with a yarn store after our remote existence these past few years in Montana. Even though I know the basics of casting on and off, knitting, and purling, I decided it was time for a proper class. There is nothing like learning from experienced crafters. I’m so glad that I went! I learned the most beautiful casting on technique. Its from the continental style of knitting (versus the English style). This project is super easy and would be a great project for any teens you’re trying to teach, too. I even made some for our four year old as a Valentine’s Day surprise! Also, I learned about a great online resource if anyone is interested. Its way better than You Tube. Check out knittinghelp.com!
As far as reading goes, well, I’m afraid I’m a bit of a bore right now. I’ve been going through a lot of homeschooling information in books and online. I’m revisiting educational philosophies in an attempt to find a better method to our madness. Meh.
