Tony decided he was going to knit. And knit he did. My newest student remembered his childhood knitting lessons/GI Joe blanket skills quite easily and was cranking out garter stitch in no time. He has ambitious plans which he wants to start IMMEDIATELY: a scarf of 220 stitches.
He and Star Pupil #1 Cara are already in the knitter mode: heading to the yarn store today for project bags and yarn. My work is done.
