What's new?

We have been super busy, and our schedule is almost, almost, calming down. Tomorrow I start the "Crochet and Chat" series at the local library. Me, and librarianAnna (on Ravelry) will be at the library for the 2nd Tuesday of each month for Sept, Oct, Nov & Dec. I am excited. I am preparing for a variety of crochet friends to show up. Maybe some brand new beginners, maybe some intermediate crocheters, maybe some lefties. I am now confident with my left-handed crochet, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to teach any lefties without the usual frustration and awkwardness. Last night I worked to make some "starter" kits so that each student will have INSTANT success! I also finished a funky hat that I may teach. I made it in 4 different colors so that the students can see which area of the hat corresponds with each lesson. Secretly, I'm hoping that there will be a HUGE variety of people with different skill levels there so that some people can be working on their own projects and socializing while some are learning and uh, getting addicted. I'm also bringing a bag of great yarn to tease them with! I'll keep you posted. Any tips out there from you veteran crochet teachers?

You're gonna do great!! I wish I lived near you so that I could attend. Have a great time and I think it is wonderful of you to teach your talent to others.
