My Students are AWESOME!!!!!

This week my students are finishing up lots of projects for themselves. Finally. I am so glad they are knitting stuff to keep. They donated over 50 baby hats and 11 bunnies to Stitches from the Heart last week. Their baby sweater final project is coming soon. It will be a set with a hat, booties and a baby sweater.

Here are a few of the finished projects this week. This is Lizzy. She is a brand new knitter and was "over" the bunnies (after making 3) and decided to tackle cables. She made this super-cute purse and even went to Michael Levine's downtown to shop for the perfect handles.

Here is a close up of her black cable purse. Super cute!

This is Iliana. She is a beginner who is such a fast knitter that I keep having to come up with new projects to challenge her.

Here is a close up of the purple cable purse. Love it!!!!

Here is Hannah in a hat she knit out of chenille yarn. Very pretty.

And finally, here is Erin. My most advanced knitter. I wanted her to try entrelac knitting, so she did this headband. The pattern is from Knitty.com It was foggy and chilly yesterday so her headband kept her ears nice and warm. I love this pattern and plan to knit a few as x-mas gifts.

Hello fellow knitter! I've been asked to start an after-school knitting class at my local Y for highschoolers. I've been told to expect two hours, twice a week for four weeks. 16 hours total. I'm thinking about fingerless gloves (knit rectangle seamed up the side). Perhaps a hat that can be seamed. Of course there's always the scarf!

Any thoughts you may have regarding getting started would be welcomed. Thanks in advance and happy knitting!
