Every once in awhile I'll knit in front of my classes. When they're working on something together, I find that it lowers my stress level to the point where I can actively supervise and listen for trouble spots. And I have to say, I love their expressions of awe when they see me make something out of nothing.
This week girls in my class have been bringing in their knitting and working away while I read to them. It's awfully cute, but it makes me intolerably jealous. Today, while they were working through some questions, I picked up one girl's beginner scarf and worked a couple of rows. It made me feel ever so much better. Now I just have to start that knitting club I promised.
