They're off and Knitting!

I'm just home from teaching beginner knitting at CCCK. The exciting thing is, they're off and knitting! I'd hoped to have seven students pretty confident with a knit stitch by the end of the evening. Instead they'd gobbled that up, learned to cast on and were having a good go at both knit and purl. Now for a week of practising at home, while their scarves get longer and longer. Next week we'll problem-solve and/or congratulate and learn to cast off.

They just took to it so much more easily than I'd expected. It was fun:)
