I had my first school knitting club after school today for 12 children aged 7-10. Phew! it was hard word, some of them seemed to get it but others lost their temper after their first attempt! I expailed how I found it hard when i first learned and how it was like riding a bike without stabilisers! I think about half will drop out leaving me with about 5 or 6 who have the determination to practise! I’m going to have to get some dinner first before I tackle my knitting. It really reminded me of how difficult and awkward knitting seemed when I was learning!
I am really making progress on my Debbie Bliss cashmerino astrakhan jacket (pictures soon to follow!) – half way through the back piece and then we are nearly there! I can’t wait to finish so I can get started on the baby jumper!
