Yesterday afternoon, Knots & Bolts was invaded by some 6th grade Girl Scouts. (These girls are all…about 12 years old, I guess.)
They are working on a fashion badge, and part of what they’ll be doing to earn the badge is learning to knit.
Not surprisingly, some of them took to it more quickly than others. The young lady 2nd from the left in the above picture? She was the one that was MOST resistant to this whole learning-to-knit-thing.
She ended up being the one that caught on the quickest, and enjoyed it the most. Lesson there, I think.
They’ll be back again in 2 weeks as as group. I hope some of them will come back sooner for some one-on-one.
The girls and I learned a few things:
11 girls at once is a lot.
If you think you’ve got it, and get relax too soon and start chattering, you’ll probably get in trouble and end up with a tangled mess.
It’ll be a miracle if any of the dishcloths are square. Or flat. Or finished.
Suzanne is glad she is raising boys.
