Here are my two knitting students working on their GI Joe/Barbie blankets. Liam has been begging me to teach him to knit all summer. Al was in the class for about 2 minutes before the needles went flying and he decided Power Rangers on TV was more fun.
So far, we have "worm" size blankets, but Cara & Liam have all the makings of excellent knitters. Despite having the worst teacher EVER. A leftie who can't explain how to do anything right handed.
