Last night was beginners knitting class at the shop. Sue and I started seven people on their knitting journey. I love the first class in the sessions as I'm thrilled by the delight in the eye of someone who, after 5 minutes struggling, suddely gets that cast on is easy.
It is great to have so many people wanting to knit, we had to turn people away - there is always lots of teaching at the knitting in the pub club but that's a very different, informal and can often be a distracting situation.
I've been picturing it (and re-hearing the squeals of delight) all day!
Long live the knitters, for happily they shall reign.
