Hey lovelies, halfway to the weekend already! Today I’m talking about the very start of some of this years plans.
Towards the end of 2017 I started to teach. As a home educating mum who happens to knit and crochet I have been asked a few times about teaching children yarn crafts. A couple of years ago when I was juggling a relatively new baby and had newly moved house, I did a handful of lessons back in the city we had moved from. This presented a few challenges that ultimately ended up in my having to discontinue them. Almost an hour travel by train each way, occasional missing of lessons by students after I’d arrived, the baby (who came with me at that point) turning into a toddler who didn’t want to sit still for 3 hours while I taught, and just life, all got quite hectic. I was quite sad, because it was something I enjoyed, and I did vow to restart local to me, where I could stay home if everyone suddenly fell down sick, or the weather was so awful noone wanted to attend. But, my fears and worries all kept making me put it off.
Around October last year, the mum of one of the children I had previously taught put a request out for knitting teachers again. Local to me, and having been a previous pupil, I decided it was the sign I was waiting for to get my at together and start again. So I did! This time with more confidence, not in my crafts, I have been doing those long enough to trust my skill, but in my ability to assist someone else to make something incredible.
In the meantime I had managed to teach one of my own children to the point she has finished projects and have had enough interest from adults to know once I have the resources adult lessons will be next. Yes, that’s right in a few weeks time I will be putting a call out for my first virtual, adult students to learn to knit or crochet.
For now I hope you’ve enjoyed the little pics through of my various students work, they do so great for little hands (my youngest student is just 7) and keep your eyes open in my Facebook Group for that call for adults students coming soon.
With much love
