Host a Knitting Shower!

If you are in the San Francisco Bay area and have a special bride or expectant mother in your life, consider hosting a “Knitting Shower,” and invite a group of special friends to create a unique gift!

I’d love to come and teach your group the basic knitting skills necessary to make a blanket square. The squares can then be assembled into an unforgettable one-of-a-kind gift that will be treasured for years to come!

A “Knitting Shower” is a fun opportunity to get together, learn a skill that will last a lifetime, and that will result in a special keepsake.

The fee includes materials, three hours of knitting instruction, and post-party blanket assembly.

Knitting Fingers!

As you may recall from previous posts, my 4-year-old son desperately wants to learn how to knit. The I-cord “machine” didn’t cut it for me, and a spool or knitting noddy uses that little thingamajig to manipulate it, so I taught him to finger knit (or as he calls it “knitting fingers”). Here is a picture of his “knitting fingers” in progress as well as a picture of the end result (also known as a Cat Torturer….our cat has gone ba-zonkers chasing my son around and around as he runs with it!).

An Apple for the Teacher!

One of the things I love most about my job is teaching…specifically teaching kids & teens. Today we had a group of teens from a local high school come in. They had selected some projects from the Teen Knitting Club book. It was such a blast to see these girls learn new techniques and really get into their projects!
