Lessons In Patience

On Friday, I taught some of my co-workers how to knit as part of our half day staff retreat/meeting.

Wow. What a reminder that knitting truly is a test of your patience, a talent and some serious dexterity skills.

I had four people in my knitting class. And I learned that teaching someone to knit is really hard! Explaining how to hold the yarn (I knit contentinal) and how to go through the stitches is actually super difficult. I need to watch some lessons on how to teach lesson!!!

I must have done something right though! Everyone in my “class” learned how to cast on and got their first row of garter stitch going. We’re planning to meet up during our lunch hour next Friday for a second lesson.

I’m so excited to share my love of knitting with other people. šŸ’• I’m thinking about doing some YouTube videos on how to knit for my site. What do you think? Go for it?

  1. Good going there! I once tried to start a ‘knitting club’ at work but it never took off, lol… I’ve taught others (informally) though. It’s an incredibly satisfying feeling to see your ‘students’ make things, isn’t it?

    • lol It was so hard to teach knitting!! I never knew how challenging it was to explain knitting. I also tried to get everyone together to knit at lunch hour, but no one showed up.
