Knitting Traditions

Saturday morning I taught a beginner knitting class at Knit Stitch in London and had the pleasure of meeting these three lovely knitters.

By the end of the class everyone had cast on and was started on their first slipper!  These slippers make a great beginner project; simple garter stitch with a little increasing and decreasing thrown in.

I think for most of us, these slippers bring back fond memories of receiving them as gifts from our Grandmas.  Maybe these new knitters will carry on that tradition.
