My Students!

Sunday, April 24th, 2005

two brothers with their knittingI am so pleased with the classes I’ve had recently. My students are totally the best! I showed you Irene with her Watercolor Bag two days ago. Here are some more belated photos of my students and their projects of the last few weeks.

two brothers with their knittingFirst, two brothers in my CityKidz Knit! program at Foster Community Center. This was their second week. They both finished their first project, wristbands. The younger one is already done with his second project, a dice bag for playing games, out of gray wool-ease someone out there (one of you reading this now perhaps) sent as a donation to my program. He did a finger-crocheted drawstring which worked great for his needs. He is now knitting a bag for his grandmother, from some purple acrylic also donated by someone wonderful out there (purple goes fast).

The other brother is working on a larger project that he came up with himself. I can’t remember what that project is right now. I did have a lot of first wristbands and other finished objects this last week, but with six knitters Wednesday and nine knitter Thursday, I was so busy I did not have time to take photographs.

Here are photos of Cheryl and her first toe-up sock (she has made other types of socks before), and Amy’s foot wearing her first sock ever! I had three others in the class, but two were not able to be there the last day and the fifth, Dian, decided her sock was not the way she wanted so she ripped it back and started over. Good for her, though it will take a while for her to catch up.

I have more photos of students to share. I’ll catch up on those soon, I hope. Meanwhile, can you see why I love this work I do? The best!
