This morning I was scheduled to teach a Kids’ Knitting class. There was a problem though. I didn’t have it noted in my calendar. The only class I saw on the schedule from Joann’s was an adult class at 6 p.m.
So I took my time waking up, read the newspaper and was just finishing up my breakfast when the phone rang. It was Joann’s. They had two students sitting there waiting for me to come teach them to knit. They were willing to wait on me so I quickly got dressed, grabbed my toast and finished breakfast in the car.
What a good class that turned out to be! Oddly enough, both girls knew how to knit so I’m not sure why their mothers signed them up to take my class. But we got right into things and they did so well. Both finished their mug rugs and coin purses. One girl still had 30 minutes before her mother was coming to get her so I taught her the purl stitch which is not part of the curriculum for that class.
But these new knitters can sure ask some tough questions. One asked me why is the purl stitch called that. Anyone know? I sure don’t. I’m not sure where to look for the answer even.
