This past Sunday, the Minnesota Knitter's Guild participated in National Knit-Out Day. We hosted the event at Southdale Mall and the festivities included a handmade knits fashion show, door prizes, and free knitting lessons to anyone who wanted them. I volunteered to be one of the teachers, and I'm not sure who learned more - me or my students. I've never taught knitting before, and I have to admit, I botched it with my first student. I was nervous and it showed. But I learned quickly from my mistakes and did just fine with my second student. By the time I had my third student, I was in a groove and felt pretty confident. The event was very well attended and I think everyone (except maybe my first student) had a great time.
