RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
In 7th grade (back in the 70's) I taught the fellow students-boys and girls- how to knit using pencils... pretty soon the whole class was knitting during class. We were quiet, listening to the teacher and happy.
Even though we were all using dark red yarn, our "knitting" became pretty dirty due to the carbon on the pencils! But it was a lot if fun because as Cat said, we were doing something as a group and it was a great leveler.
Now I am inspired to teach my 11 year old son how to knit and take it back up myself!
