One of my favorite ‘jobs’ as a LitKnit facilitator is to come up with patterns that work for our knitting learners. I have been noticing, lately, how the first skill I bring to the circle is to listen. I listen for what each circle member is interested in doing and then I adapt what I know about my craft to see if I can come up with a project that the learner can engage with. Last week it was to start Rosie on a baby blanket for her grandbaby.
So, at home that week, I took a stitch pattern and applied it to a basic baby blanket pattern. I needed to stitch up a swatch so that I knew what I was thinking would work. I can always use another washcloth, right? It makes me happy to see Rosie’s Baby Blanket Pattern worked up as a LitKnit pattern. It will now be available for other LitKnit facilitators to use in their circles. Creating, sharing and resourcing each other is such a generative way to live!
