Fabulous knitting class this week!

29 Mar

This last Wednesday, we had a great knitting class.  The kids didn’t even really want to take a break in the middle – they were all concentrating on their projects and each other.Image

This is one of my 4th graders who is knitting a sampler scarf.  She has learned lace, ribbing, and is now working on seed stitch.  She loves this yarn – the softness and the color.  I think it’s so important to provide nice yarns and good tools for the kids to learn with.  It just makes the experience so much more pleasing and exciting for them.Image

This 2nd grader is working on a stuffed bear.  Her stitches are so even and smooth!!  Just look at the way she added on that new color to transition from the top of the shorts to the shirt for the torso part.  She has already completed both legs.  I just can’t believe the progress she has made!Image

The second grader who is working on this is so fun!  She finished her sampler scarf and then wanted to start something completely different. I taught her the basket weave stitch and asked her what she had in mind.  She told me she wants to knit up a whole lot of different colored squares and then sew them together to make a small blanket for one of her dolls.  How cool is that?!!Image

The above photo is near and dear to my heart.  These two students are discussing and helping each other with their knitting.  One of them thought she had made  a mistake and the other one was taking a close look and advising her.  I am so proud of them!!  They have reached a new level in their knitting and I couldn’t be happier for them.

 

These are just a few examples of how knitting class went this week.  I can’t wait for our next class to see what they have in store for me!
