Striking Things Off My ’30 Before 30′ List

29. Teach knitting to children


I’m checking things off of my list, slowly but surely. Here I am, teaching high school students how to loom knit for City Without Walls’ Yarn City Project. I am one of the teaching artist in residence at art gallery City Without Walls teaching students how to knit and create pieces to yarnbomb Newark’s Lincoln Park.

This is a great initiative and I’m so excited and so proud to be apart of it.

We are teaching the students how to loom knit as opposed to traditional knitting because it is faster and we have to create a certain amount of knitted pieces in a specific time-frame. Once the first phase of the project is completed, I will get them started on the traditional method of knitting.
