Knitting Lessons

Recently I had a fantastic opportunity to teach some beginners to knit. Thankyou Craft Guerrilla for the experience!

It was fun, but a reminder of how awkward it feels when you first hold the needles. Knitting is such a relaxing and therapeutic activity, but in order to get to that stage, you need to get through the slightly frustrating and slow process of learning. I was so proud to get a group of newbies through casting on and mastering knit stitch. They were keen enough to take their yarn and needles home, so hopefully I’ve inspired some new knitters.

I was so intensely focused on peering over everyone’s shoulders that I forgot to take any pictures, so here’s Sayed patiently acting as my ‘guinea pig’ learner. Apologies for the terrible quality images, but I couldn’t resist attempting an animated gif.
