My first student (eek!) has chosen her first project - a dishcloth (whew!) in blue. After some consideration, we'll be using this pattern. I figured it's the best way to master the knit stitch (k) and learn how to read a pattern. The purl stitch (p) will have to come later. For casting on, we'll be using the knitting on technique. If any of you have taught someone else how to knit before, please let me know how your first lesson went. Also, do you have any suggestions for a good cotton yarn? We'll get started once the supplies have been purchased from Knit Happens or AC Moore... they're both having sales this week!
