Smiles and happiness through knitting in public

by Aimee on July 14, 2007

Harry Potter night usurped our normal Friday Night Mystery Stole night, but it was worth it. SO WORTH IT. Because I worked on Tomato in the theater. Tomato now has 2 sleeves and all the tails are woven in. That means the neckline is next. Wow – this has been a fast knit. I can’t wait to share it with you all!

That isn’t the point of this post. The point is that Cristi and I talked to the guy and girl behind us about knitting. They started it even. YAY! I also talked to someone about teaching her knitting soon (more on that later). And I will be planning and (maybe) teaching an Intro to Lace class in September. Depends on which state I am living in then. Oh – and Dave (the new GUY we have in our Panera Knitting Group – HI DAVE! *hugs*) stopped by the shop today and we got him all patched up on his stockinette stitch, he was a happy happy knitter and left with a copy of Stitch ‘N Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook which I highly recommend to new knitters and old alike. It is a great reference and it is the book I taught myself to knit from.

Anyway – spreading the joy and happiness of knitting throughout the world and doing it with smiles and happiness. That is the point of this post.

Oh – and Dave said he listened to my podcast and he was so proud. He wants to talk me into a vidoe podcast. hmmmm…twist my arm, Dave, twist my arm.

It IS wonderful to see knitting spread to others! :o D

I never did get it why some knitters are not willing to teach others the basics 101 of knitting but feel they need to sign-up for every class!

Can’t wait to meet the new guy in SNB! Sounds like he is excited to be knitting!
