Hey everyone. Hope you are all ready for a long (hopefully fun) weekend. I know I am! It's amazing how much I look forward to the weekend even though I don't work. It's a mentality thing I guess. Anyway, I need some advice from my fellow knitters.
As most of you know, I belong to a moms group in my neighborhood. They are a wonderful group of moms and I feel really lucky to have them as my friends. Anyway, since I moved here they have made me feel so welcome. My only disappointment was that none of them were knitters. However, recently I've had several of my friends mention that they'd like to learn to knit. So I asked around and it looks like there are at least ten moms in the group who want to learn to knit. So I'm going to teach them! I'm so excited!
But I want to make sure I do this right. So here are my questions:
1) Are there any resources (books, websites, etc) that have been really helpful to you as a knitter?
2) What do you think is a great first project? (Please be as specific as possible. Links to free patterns would be wonderful!)
3) How did you learn to knit? (Just curious.)
4) How many people do you think I could teach at a time? (I plan to do small groups because I think trying to teach ten people at one time would be impossible. How many do you think I could do in one meeting?)
Thanks in advance for your help. Non-knitters please feel free to put in your two cents worth as well. Have a good one!
