NEW YEAR.....NEW ADVENTURES IN KNITTING!



Decided that I JUST WASN'T BUSY ENOUGH, so now I am teaching knitting at my local Michael's Arts and Craft store!

ATTENTION ALL KNITTERS!

MICHAEL'S ARTS AND CRAFTS IN THE EASTON/BETHLEHEM AREA IS HOSTING A 5 HOUR YARN EVENT ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 29TH!

I will be there knitting and offering help, as well as encouragement, to all who come by from 12 noon to 5 pm. There will also be contests and prizes, according to the store flyer. Sounds like it will be a fun day. Yes, folks, I am being paid to knit, talk to people, and be helpful. Does it get any better than this?

I started this commitment in December, and now that the word is getting out, I am starting to have a few students. Meeting some really nice people who really have the desire to learn. Which makes it so much fun for me, especially when I can see the look on their faces when they GET IT!

As you can see from my very first class sample, I am keeping it really simple for beginners, because nothing kills a new knitter's psyche more than getting overwhelmed with trying to master too many techniques at the start. Who wouldn't love to wash dishes with this cute little dishcloth?

Meanwhile, I am knitting some scarf samples for possible March classes, as well as beginning one of 2 mitered square type baby blankets for my nonknitting friends. Today I hope to cast on for the FRENCH MARKET BAG-see it here at

HAPPY KNITTING FOR NOW!
