CityKidz Knit!

Monday, January 6th, 2003

Today was the first day of my new term at Foster Community Center. I have a computer classroom there, where I teach computer classes (mostly to novices, usually retired ladies) and where we open it up as a lab to the public, four times a week, for games and homework.

Since August I’ve also had a program, CityKidz Knit! This is the most fun I’ve ever had, maybe ever. My kids are from 7 years to about 15 years old. They are delightful people and they do a darned good job knitting. I have a few kids still with me who started this summer, who are doing hats, scarves, stoles, socks and one sweater. This term, the City of Lansing put a blurb in the schedule book about my program and I found six more people who might not otherwise have found my program.

Today I had 12 kids. It was wonderful! I had five new folks, a few kids I hadn’t seen since summer, and three of my regulars. Magic. Always magic.

I’ll write more about these remarkable children as the term continues. Today I’m wiped out from not enough sleep working for a client. I’m definitely crashing early tonight!
