I had my last knitting class last night. I feel great - I know how to do lots of things, and now can spend the time to use and practise what I have learnt. How empowering.
While this is wonderful, I am little concerned I have never felt this way after any other class. I am a teacher (of high school science/agricultural science). I doubt my students ever felt this way.
Maybe because knitting requires a small set of skills, and once you know them, just small technique variations gives all kinds of results.
I've got more thoughts on this, but can't currently organise them. I'll be back, but right now am going to follow Brenda's instructions, and go forth and knit!
