Knit Wits are knitting!

The after school class is moving along. It is just so cool to see the kids excited about knitting. I don't give them homework yet several of the kids come to class with something they made over the weekend. This week the students continued to knit on their garter stitch swatch, then they learned to bind off and we felted the swatches. Next week we'll add a whipstitched border and maybe a tassel to make a felted bookmark. They will also learn to cast on and the kids that mastered the knit stitch will learn to purl.
