first day of school

August 20, 2011

in a way, anyway.

classes and teaching at msu don’t begin until the 31st,
and my need to vomit is diminishing.

today, i teach my first ever knitting class.
the important word there is “my”,
my take on beginning knitting.

i thought about taking the approach i was comfortable with,
the way i was taught or the way things were done at natural stitches.
both are excellent, and get the job done.

instead i’ve stolen a bunch of ideas from other people
and mixed them together to make “my” class.
and in about an hour and a half,
it will make its debut.

all i can do now
is go over how i want to begin,
and prepare in my own way.
breakfast of champions.

wish me luck, bitches!

    You will be awesome, the class will be bitchin’, and I have no doubt you and the students all will have a blast. I was scared spitless the first class I taught (I had some experienced knitters in there so got intimidated, then I got over it).

    Remember: you know more than they do.

    I taught Art in high school for 37 years (now retired). It just gets more fun as you go along. You will find your groove and you are such a great person ~ they will love you! I wish I could take your class. It’s good that you are making it your “own.”
    HAVE FUN!!!!!!!

    So how did it go?

  11. Trisha R Says:

    I’m sad that I already know how to knit, and knit in the round. 😦 Can’t wait to see your name on something more challenging, but not TOO challenging! Hope you had a great time!

  12. Hope Says:

    How’d it go? I’ll bet you did a great job! What will you be teaching at MSU?

    NorCal bitch, wishing you much success.. I like your idea of a breakfast of champions…I like a good “shot in the dark” strong coffee with an add shot of espresso, creame & sugar.. my assistant used to call it my liquid crack.
