Finger Knitting!

It has been quite a while but I'm still kicking. I taught all my students (36) how to finger knit this week and they LOVE it! We're studying early California and the wagon trains that brought the pioneers west. I bought them each a ball of Lily "Sugar and Cream" and taught them how to find the center of the ball, tie a slip knot and got them knitting on 4 fingers (some on 3 fingers making i-cord). They wouldn't put it down! Since it was Thursday of our last week before "Winter Break" that was fine--it's mathmatical and scientific! I've offered to teach how to 'needle knit' after we return in January. After school, of course! I'll have to bring photos. I hope to get some knitting done this break.

Amy comes home this next week after her finals. I'm excited to have her home for a while. No big plans for the holidays, just spending it with family. Peace to all!

Happy Birthday, Kris! Your Organics are thinking lovingly of you and Amy. Happy New Year, good health and pleasure with all that you undertake in 2007 -- job, knitting, travel, friendships, reunions, you-name-it. We hope your travels bring you to the North Coast this year.

Will you teach me to finger knit? I don't know how to do that, but I am the i in i-cord :-) Love you muchly ~~XO, Clover & Himself
