New to the site - teach knitting and need class ideas

I'm new to the KnittingHelp forum. My name is Bonnie, I'm a pediatric nurse throughout a children's hospital where I encourage coworkers to knit/crochet/sew for all our patients from premies to 21 year olds. I've taught a number of my coworkers how to knit.

I've been crocheting since I was 4 years old (1954) and knitting since I was 12 or 13. My mother taught me to crochet and my sister taught me to knit.

I teach classes at a local yarn shop and get paid in yarn. I meet the nicest people there. My current classes are 1. How to fix your mistakes, 2. The Lucy Bag (pattern from Two Old Bags) and 3. Continental Knitting with the project being a simple felted bag.

I'm always on the lookout for some good ideas for new classes to teach. I'd love to hear what all of you think your dream class would be.

Knit, knit, knit,

I'm a fan, Amy. Thanks for the site.

Is anyone knitting the corset shown on DIY this spring by Annie Modesitt? I'm about 8" into it and deeply admire and appreciate Annie's design skills, but I am a little concerned that the armholes might be a bit small because of my gauge. My DIL may get another of my handknitted sweaters!

This is my first post to this group and I'm looking forward to participating.

Hello There :)
My name is Janet (do you like the play on the name for my SN? lol)
I have wanted to learn to knit for a long time and finally just decided to stop waiting for someone to help me, and help myself. I picked up a "teach yourself to knit" kit at Wal-Mart but the book was ridiculous to understand. I couldn't figure out the cast on and even my DH had trouble getting it (and he's good with directions!).

So, I went to another forum I visit every day, asked around and was sent here. I learned to cast on in no time at all just by watching the video!

I am just doing a regular stockinette knit (is that what it's called?) right now and making a potholder - I think LOL - even if it doesn't really turn into anything I don't care. I've learned something new and I am HOOKED!

I hope it will be okay to be "needy" because I'll have lots of questions. But I'm a quick learner and look forward to the day when I can accomplish some of the awsome patterns I've seen (I'd love to do a knitted parasol for my teen girl )

On a personal note:
I am 35 years old. I've been married for 18 years. We have 4 children ages 17, 15, 5, and 4.
I homeschool the youngest two and have given my teen girl the option if she wants to ... hs'ing her would be fun - she's a really cool kid

Anything else you want to know? Just ask me. I figure it's only fair since I'll be asking you all questions soon enough LOL

Send a message via Yahoo to monika11352
Good Morning, and thank you for the message. I could not remember that I did not introduce myself here, so I will do it now. My name is Monika, I am 55 years young, work full time and have been happily married to my husband John for 34 years. Between his, mine and ours, we have 5 children, 1 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. I knit and crochet both since I was a little girl and currently am on a dishcloth kick while I am riding a train to work, one of my at home projects is a shawl in 'grandma's favorite' pattern, as well as baby socks for my smallest granddaughter - she will be 1 year old next month. I look forward to meeting lots of new cyberfriends and hopefully learn some new things here.
