A View from Sierra County

Small town life and politics, lots of knitting, and travels with and without my five burros

My Photo
Location: In the Sierra Nevadas, United States

I blog about rural living and social issues, and the creativity that comes from knitting, as well as post random pictures of the Sierras and my burros. "In order to be an artist, one must be deeply rooted in the society" - Simone de Beauvoir

Teaching Knitting

Cheryl snapped a photo of me showing Jade how to work a drop stitch pattern, and was so excited that the kids at recess got to see us making something with our hands. I did have to tell her and one of my high school students that it was ironic that there weren't enough students at the high school to have a regular class to teach that period, but here I was teaching knitting!

Jade started a scarf shown in Stitch and Bitch Nation, using Trendsetter Aquarius in pinks and purples. The drop stitch will show off the ribbon yarn very well. After trying it out and beginning to learn the stitch, she decided to use a fuchia boucle for the two plain knitted rows in the four-row pattern to set off the ribbon yarn and give a little more substance to the scarf. I will get a picture of her finished product.
