Silver,

I have turned several people on to your sock tutorial. I'll bet you are a great teacher. I'd like to come learn too!!

I also love to teach knitting. I actually love to teach anything. Finding students is the hard part. I have found several people who say they want to learn to knit, but never get started, or people who "think" they want to knit until they learn it is pretty slow and hard at first, and give up. Sigh. I'm glad you have some students and I hope they are the obsessive, not the quiting kind. LOL

Great job! It sounds like it meant a lot to your students that you taught without a large attendance. *high five*

Silver! That's great news. Good for you! It's strange, there's sometimes a nerve thing going on with a parent and child, like my father drove me crazy when he tried to teach me something because he was so critical. So it was better for her with you teaching.

By the way, I am extremely pleased because I met a woman this past weekend who owns a really cool shop and out of the blue! she asked me if I would like to teach knitting in her store this fall. I was so surprised I didn't even respond right, like, jumping up and down which is what I did when I got home. AND she said I could put some of my stuff in her shop on commission.

So I really want to hear about your teaching. Were you nervous? Did you have a plan? Or can it just be really simple.... I guess so. I'm just a little nervous I guess....

I think it would be great fun to take a class from you.

I hope you realize the impact your sock tutorials have had on people.

Thanks, Silver!!!
