Teaching

So I'm going to be a knitting instructor. It was a strange interview, if one can call it that. The conversation went something like this:

Me: Hi, this is pixelknits. I'm the girl who's working on the Sudoku Afghan and Tilting at Windmills and I'm interested in the Knitting Instructor position you posted

A: Have you ever taught before?

Me: Not professionally, just a few friends and children of my friends

A: I'm always getting asked if we have kids classes and with summer starting in a couple of months I'd like to offer one.

Me: I don't mind teaching children. I wish my son would let me teach him, but I have to borrow all my friends' children.

A: You're hired!

Anyway, I'll be teaching Beginning and Intermediate classes as well as Technique and Project classes. I have to come up with a class schedule this week to start at the end of April and carry into early June. I'm really excited and only a little nervous, just because I want to do a good job and keep it interesting.

For the technique class I'm thinking of doing double-knitting and brioche stitch. For the project class, perhaps a Fair Isle pillow, a baby sweater or a Shibori or Lace scarf.
