I've started teaching an after school Knitting Class on Fridays. 11 little first and second graders. We just had the first class and OMG. I started with finger knitting and most were able to make a chain...in 1 hour! Good thing only 9 showed up. I had posters, visuals, examples, tons of yarn and sticks. I'll see how many return for lesson #2. Hopefully some will drop out. 11 six-seven year olds is too many for 1 person. Here's the best part, I get paid $48.70 for 1 1/2 hrs. Crazy, I know! So, all is well this school year.
I'm reading a young adult book, Artemis Fowl, really good if you like oddball fantasy. Reminds me of the Golden Compass books. I finished the Millennium Trilogy--Dragon Tatoo girl etc. I loved them. Here's the worst part. The writing was so good, I couldn't read anything after them. So, Eoin Colfer, here I come.
