Back to teaching and Sock Wars!

Sunday is the first classes I've taught since June. I feel a little out of practice but it shouldn't take too long to get back into the "explaining" mode.

August Knifty Knitter project class will be a fingerless mitt. This one is done on the round loom (not the newer oval loom) since I haven't seen the new looms available at Michaels yet. I'm wondering what's with that!

Also I'm teaching a stretch magic class. This is a huge thing for me as I tend to be a snob when it comes to beading thread. Stretch magic has been used for making bracelets without clasps - the stringing method, ya know. And I'm a I stuck my nose in the air and stated "not for me." I was wrong. It does works for some beadweaving projects.

And here's a peek at a future Knifty Knitter class.


Like some knitters, I'm addicted to knitting socks. Yeah, yeah....I know I can get them already made for cheaper then the price as yarn. Yet I'm addicted like many other knitters.

One of the groups I belong to has mentioned Sock Wars 2006. Since it sounds like fun, I wanted to mention it here! Check it out.

I am going to be interviewed this Friday to teach at my local Michaels. I am trying to get ideas of what a good beginners project would be for knitting and crocheting, maybe you would be wiling to share with me what was successful in some of your classes? Also, do you type up your own tutorials to send home with the students? I would be interested in hearing your thoughts. You can email me at earthravin at sbcglobal dot net.

Those are all great projects you have chosen!
