Today was a Teaching Day

 Today was the first afternoon of the Learn to Knit class that I was asked to teach at Ziraldo Alpacas.  Debbie offered a farm tour to the students before the class started so everyone had a chance to see the alpacas up close.  This girl is definitely proving that the grass IS greener on the other side!

I met five new knitters and we had a great class learning the long tail cast on, the knit stitch, how to pick up a dropped stitch and the benefits of using a life line.

I decided to knit along with the students so here is the start of my mitten.  Everyone did amazing today and picked everything up quickly.  Have fun knitting this week!

Few things are as much fun as hanging out with alpacas!
