Knitting Students Learning Well!

I'm SO proud of my knitting students. They are quickly learning, and making projects to keep and share. So far, they have made napkin rings, a bracelet, an anklet, sachets, hula doll puppets, dishcloths, and hair scrunchies. Now, two of my students are learning to knit drop-stitch scarves as well!

This past week, I taught two of my students basic crochet stitches, and they did their best to understand. I think they are better at knitting, which is a surprise to me!

I taught my two older students how to dye yarn with Kool-Aid. They did much better than I did with their dyeing! In this photo, you can see the four skeins we completed. They did the first two, and I did the two on the right.

Kool-Aid Dyeing Day

Abby used blue and pink Kool-Aid, Melissa used blue and yellow for hers. I used orange Kool-Aid on the stovetop for the solid orange yarn, and used blue, red, and yellow for the variegated skein. We had fun!

We used this tutorial for our Kool-Aid dyeing:
