Rebeca (behind Jasper's silly face) and Zion (two colored hair girl) visited the American Craft Council Circle in last month. It is so fun to have guests at our circle. Let us know if you'd like to experience a LitKnit circle and we'll set you up!

Brenna, from East Side Neighborhood Services, joined us as a guest at last week's American Craft Council LitKnit Circle. East Side is looking into starting a LitKnit circle in their neighborhood and Brenna visited so that she could experience what a LitKnit circle is. We even taught her to knit while she was with us! It was so nice to have you, thank you for coming, Brenna!
We see this all the time and it always makes me happy - seeing a participant use their newly finished piece. :)
Katrina is the Neighborhood Coordinator for our Craft Council LitKnit circle. She is also a trained facilitator! Her commitment to LitKnit has increased with the years, not decreased. We are SO thankful for her and her passionate support of LitKnit's work. Thank you, Katrina!
Our little Craft Council Circle has started a new trend of having different learners read the story to us. We are trying it out and seeing how it goes. Sometimes people can loose the 'continuity' of the story with different readers... yet... something special happens that older and younger members feel comfortable reading Victorian English to their circle. We'll have to see what happens!
It was great to go through the pictures of last week's ACC circle and see all the 'cracking up' laughter that was happening in the circle. We do have fun together. :)
After one week of teaching new learners to knit - we were back to our story! Great job new learners!
Four new people joined our Craft Council Circle on Wednesday. We have even opened up a waiting list for another person who was interested in joining. One thing we love is that one of the new people who joined is little brother to one of our participants, and the person on the waiting list is a brother of another participant as well. We have noticed that knitting helps families. Most of our participants in families have had more than one family member in our circles. They tell us how knitting is a skill that helps them even at home.
