30-Day Challenge:: More Sampling, the Knotted Kind
Or should I say the knitted kind. Along with sewing and sewing technique classes at Stitch Lab, I've also started teaching some knitting classes. Some of those are temporary as the fabulous gal who usually teaches them just had a baby, so I'm just subbing. But I've also proposed several projects based classes for the folks who've taken the "how-to" class and want to apply their knowledge to a specific project. Seeing as all the people in the class are pretty new to knitting these projects are super-simple and don't require taking a gauge. They do teach some additional techniques like knitting in the round, simple increases and decreases, and sewing up small knitted sections. I'm kind of taken aback by how excited I am to teach these classes. Maybe it's that they're outside my usual purview and feel fresh and new because of that. Maybe, it's because I'll be working with a different group of students than those who take the sewing classes. Whatever the reason I'm getting a huge kick out of making the samples and really looking forward to teaching these classes.
