Learning a new skill

We had a group here a few weeks ago that wanted to teach knitting.  They worked with around 12 people to teach them how to begin knitting.  They brought all the supplies for the group.  It was hard at first to learn but everyone had a good time and I think several learning a new talent.

    That is awesome! As a knitter (and spinner and weaver and dyer) I wholeheartedly approve! Now we need to get some more yarn and needles down there in the next truck. They can make things for themselves and for sale, too!

    SO glad this team taught people to knit. What a wonderful skill to learn! Hopefully this will help some of those that learned to even earn some income in the future through this. So great!🙂

    It was a wonderful experience. We had good translators to help us teach. We taught them to knit a dishcloth and left them with instructions on knitting a hotpad. If anyone else is going down that knows how to knit – please follow up with them to see how they are doing.

    It was wonderful to see their eagerness and excitement in learning a new skill that will help them. I hope this dishcloth project is only a jump of point for them.

    We went for a walk after the 1st knitting lesson and as we were returning, we saw the lady with the dark hat shown in the last picture sitting on a large pile of rocks with her knitting needles and yarn practicing what she had learned earlier!

    I’m so proud of our team for doing this! I’m keeping an eye out for more supplies to send with them next year!
