One thing most people who know me know (which means y'all probably don't Ha!) is that I am a Girl Scout leader at my church! I have been doing this for 9 years! And my Girl Scout troop are teenagers at that! :o)
The girls expressed an interest in knitting, especially after seeing me knitting in some of the meetings :op.
And Come On! Who doesn't learn how to knitting in a Girl Scout troop?!? That is a MUST! :oD
So this past Saturday I rounded up a couple of Charlotte Purls (Michelle a.k.a Mrs. Purls & Wendy) to help me teach the girls how to knit!
I was expecting anywhere from 6-12 girls to attend, so I had to think of a cost effective way to make this happen and of course I came up with "Peaches 'N Cream" as the yarn to work with on bamboo skewers (Boy those sticks are pointy! But they served their purpose! :op) to make their first dishcloth!
Thankfully it was a small group of 6 girls, but that was still a handful!
Michelle & Wendy did a wonderful job assisting with the girls' questions and were very patient (*cough*unlike CrimsonPurl *cough* Haha).
About half of the girls already knew how to knit, and the other half had experienced crocheting! So this was great! They were really excited about learning a new skill. I hope they stick with it!
I love passing on this talent to others! It truly is a priceless gift!
