Piper is sharing her check-in here. As you can see, stuffed animal guests sometimes visit a LitKnit circle. :)

Lucy is one of our new learners this fall at the Craft Council LitKnit circle. She took right to knitting and is working independently already! Great job, Lucy!
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. :)
A full LitKnit circle table is a beautiful thing!
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.
Jasper did such a great job learning to knit. This was his first time at LitKnit and he was able to knit a row by himself by the end of our time together. It is so fun to be with participants as they get excited about learning their craft.
The Yarn MissiOn is a collective that was formed in response to the police brutality in Ferguson, Missouri last year. They meet in public and knit together to create an accessible atmosphere to make conversations about race possible. Here is the article from The Guardian where I learned about them. Take a look, then check out their website! They are breaking into the scene here in Minneapolis, I am SO excited and can't wait to connect.
