Good News!

Last night I had the very pleasant opportunity to teach three people how to knit. That is the beauty of being in charge of a youth program; sometimes you do what you want to do (both the girls did ask me to teach them, though). We began with Sugar n Cream cotton and the diagonal washcloth, just like everyone who doesn't get started on a scarf. I am certain the other adult leader will stick with it, she is already the crafty type and is lucky enough to have a little girl who likes ruffled cuteness her momma made for her more than anything. I am already interested to see if either of the girls has worked on it any more by Sunday when I see them next.
This was the most fun I've had in Young Womens so far, after basic instruction had occurred and everyone got down to practice, and sit around and chat. I really that; the only Stitch and Bitch I've found around here meets on a night that doesn't work for me. But the really good news is that I will be back in Utah for a few days in a week and a half! I will see you grrls on June 11th!

A diagonal washcloth is a great idea; I'd not thought of that. I'm teaching a beginning class this summer for a week and we're going to do felted bags (I hope!)

It'll be great to see you next week!
