During Family Blogging Month, back in November, Adia was one of the top three winners. She and her family left over 60 comments on the class blog! Great family participation!
One of the prizes she was awarded was a free post on Mrs. Yollis' Classroom Blog.
I decided to post about knitting because it is a very important part in my life, and I believe everyone should learn how to knit because it is a good strategy to calm yourself down. It teaches you a lot of patience and is really fun once you acquire the necessary skills.
First, there are many different stitches in knitting. A few of them are:
- Regular Stitch
- Knit Stitch
- Pearl Stitch
I will teach the regular stitch today. The tools you need are: Needles and yarn. Needles and yarn can be located in local arts and crafts stores or fabric stores. Second, I will teach you how to cast on.
|Take the bottom of the yarn. When you do that, place your pointer finger through the yarn, and your thumb looped inside out.|
|Take the needles and bring them between the holes.|
Pull the string tightly and repeat that 20- 40 times. Just for fun if you want, you can do it as long as you want, but not more than 200 times.
Now I will teach you how to do an actual stitch.
|Make a loop with your fingers. |
After you follow that instruction, try to get your needle into the loop that you just did.
