I have been knitting for 6 years I think. Not sure exactly how long.
But over the past few years, knitting has become a part of my daily routine.
If it's for five minutes at the bus stop or hours of knitting on a weekend day, it's what I love.
I find time to knit. I learn new techniques. I find such happiness, tension release and pleasure in the art of holding yarn between my fingers, two needles in my hand, creating a piece of art stitch by stitch.
I started teaching knitting two years ago. As I gained confidence in my own skills, I thought I could teach others how to knit. I always wanted to be a teacher, so this new adventure is a joy.
So this past Saturday, I had my first group of beginner knitters. I usually teach one or two people at a time, but I opened it up to 5 or 6. The sun came out and created the perfect atmosphere for knitting on the farm! It was a perfect knitting morning.
New faces and faces of people I know from the farm and some friends signed up and started the lesson. We had sisters, a mom and her 11 year old daughter and of course, Purple Debbie :)

A pretty perfect knitting morning if you ask me.
I am pleased to say that after 2 hours, all of the girls were knitting and purling!
So exciting :) I'll have them back next week for 2 hours for more instruction and fun.
