I only got two rows of knitting done on my Prairie Shawl on Saturday, but I did teach Terri how to knit and purl, how to fix a dropped knit and purl stitch, how to recognise which is which, and a few different ways of holding needles and yarn. She did really well, I love teaching and seeing the light bulb go on as people get it. I have a set of "training needles" (one red and one yellow) and worsted acrylic yarn I use on newbies, and that works well.
Someone (several someones) said I should be teaching. What's the best way of finding people who want to pay you for private knitting lessons? I have a pretty good idea what I'm doing, taught myself basic lace, stranded two-colour knitting, socks, cables, and how to fix most mistakes I see or
make. One yarn store I know well offers their own group classes on Saturday afternoons, the other two don't have anything formal set up. I could get fliers out there, maybe on the community bulletin board at Panera Bread Company too. Has anyone tried this? Did it work?
