Today I dropped by Continuing Ed. to return 'The Binder'. It is chock full of printouts of information about the ports gleaned from travel and cruise review websites. Suzanne will pass 'The Binder' on to someone on her 'short list' who will be able to participate in my stead.
While at Con. Ed. I dropped into Erin's class (unannounced) where I had taught knitting two weeks ago. And what did I see when I walked in the door? Knitting!!!!
It was just sitting there on a desk waiting for its owner to pick it up again during a lull in the activity. She proudly informed me she was going to knit pink squares and blue squares and sew them together for blanket.
I looked in another direction and I saw this gal knitting a blanket! She was finding the plastic needles to be quite 'sticky' with yarn she was using so I suggested she try a bamboo needle or perhaps a bamboo circular.
And this young lady had knit herself a headband! Without a pattern. Just making it up on her own, including the daffodil! She sure was proud of herself. As well she should be.
Several of them told me how relaxing they thought knitting was and how much they enjoyed it. Some of the students are opting to submit their knitted project for evaluation (as per the rubric Erin and I devised) as part of the assessment for the Fashion Design course.
I can't tell you how rewarding it was so see so many happy knitters. My knitterly heart is full.
