15 teens turned out for our introduction to knitting today. Most were complete beginners, having never touched knitting needles before, so it was a real credit to Mrs. Nace, our instructor, that everyone had a pretty good handle on the basics by the time they left. I admit to not having knitted in a few decades, but the basics came back to me pretty quickly. Hopefully everyone will end up with a nice belt when they are done. When we come back on Thursday, we'll be learning different ways to finish them off. Hopefully I can get some good photos of finished projects. In the meantime, enjoy these photos of phase 1.
