I'm very excited for two reasons - I've written my first pattern and I'm teaching my first class!
The class is a beginning knitting class designed for kiddos 8-12, and right now we have two kids (one boy!) and one adult (who wants to learn to make something felted). I wanted to make a simple project that wasn't a scarf and only used one skein of yarn to cut down on cost.
I'll publish the pattern here after I teach the class, but here's the item before and after felting.
My sample is living at the store now until my class. I'm really excited - class starts in just a few weeks!
