My Wednesday lunch partners joined me today in the Art Room. Before winter break I had taught them both to use knitting towers. The plan was to bring in the knitting tubes they had made, and we would turn them into something else today.
Unfortunately, for various reasons, the knitting towers did not make it to lunch, but the kids were still excited to make something. Somewhere, in the deep recesses of my brain, I remembered watching a YouTube video of a kid finger knitting. Though I didn't watch it close enough to learn how when I watched it, I figured it out for myself today. The kids got a chance to practice, but didn't have enough time to really make anything. Next week all the Knitwits have to do is bring their fingers and we can get started.
This length of knitting was done in about ten minutes, and that includes the amount of time it took for the process to click in their brains. Next week we will get started early and try to make a respectable scarf.
