Girl Scout Knitting Part 3

Hi Knitters,
Well, I had my last group of girl scouts over yesterday. They were a wonderful group of girls eager to knit and learn.
The Collector is well into her fourth hat and she is proud of her knitting accomplishments. Her adorable friend has knitted before but not in the round so I helped her just a little with that concept. She caught on really fast.
She is very excited to make her first hat.
This girl is a returning knitter from the first meeting. Boy, is she doing well. She is almost ready to decide what type of hat top she would like. It is fun to see her enthusiasm and her ability to carry on with her knitting when she gets home.
This scout did a great job and was patient with her learning. Each stitch took some thought but she kept plugging away until it became much easier.
You can't tell from the photos but this group spent much of their time singing, some solos, some group songs. They were so funny. Some of their songs were even made up from scratch. They were up and down a bit and did some coloring in the big sketchbook on the table. They had a good time together, silly fun with a little knitting thrown in the mix. All's good.

Now on to planning a large group meeting, I am thinking maybe at Lakeside Fibers. I'll have to call over there and see what they think about that. We'll see.
Have a good weekend, Knitters. It is beautiful weather here in Madison, very spring-like indeed!
best, susie

There are a couple of little girls at church that want me to teach them how to knit. Your posts are giving me some good tips on how to get them started.

Hi Susan,

We were so taken at our yarn shop by your chicken pattern that we are hosting a knit chicken contest with your pattern. People are getting very creative with their chicks! More to come.

Hi Susan, just wanted to drop in and say thanks for your generous giveaway for Cooper's Birds recently. I was one of the winners of the yummy yarn sent by Cooper's mommy. I'll be knitting some birdies shortly.
(and I'll be contacting her also of course)

Hi Susan-

You've inspired me to teach my 3rd grade students how to knit during lunchtime. I work in a very low income area and this would be the students only access to such a wonderful hobby. I'm planning on starting with the simple hat from Itty Bitty and donating the hats to cancer patients in our area. We'll see how to goes.....
