So I traveled to the yarn store today and spoke with the owner about becoming a teacher of knitting. I think it's going to work out. The first thing I have to do is sit in on a "learn-to-knit" class (series of three classes) to get a feel for the format and how it all works. I'm signed up for the next Saturday series of classes, which begin mid-January. I'll get paid.
Before then I should probably teach myself how to cast on using two needles, since she said that's the method they teach. I should also teach myself how to knit in the continental style, since she said they will teach whichever method the new knitter seems most comfortable with. I'm pretty excited, but with a new baby coming and all I'm not sure if I can be considered a permanent fixture.
Just imagine what this new mini-job will do for my yarn stash! Oooohhh. I get all tingly just thinking about it.
So I'm going to work on making a cloche. Have I told you all that I dream of being a milliner? Anyway, it will be hard because I'm going to try and make up my own pattern and then I'll have to felt it so if I mess up it will be irreversible. I have the yarn. And now I have a headform. Pictures of experiment to follow.
