So far we have had 3 or 4 classes in which we have learned how to cast on & knit; purl, rib (knit 2, purl 2), and short rows (we made an ear warmer); and then cast off & use circular needles.
Tuesday we finished up their circular needle hats and introduced double point needles to finish off the top of the hats. I am so proud to see how far along they have come! They even mastered the seam to sew up the top seamlessly!

Before we ended, we cast on double point needles (which is definitely tricky to get started) for our fingerless gloves. I can’t wait to see how they do when we come to the thumb (in our next class). I’m sure they will master it easily. 🙂
