A Knack for Knitting

Post by Shannon Bridgeman, Douglass Park Elem.

During the winter of 2014 I found out that my brother was expecting his first child. I was going to be an aunt! Immediately I wanted to do something special for my nephew. I picked up my knitting needles and tried my hand at my first baby blanket. This seemed slightly intimidating since all I had made up to this point were scarves. Now, about a year and a half later, I am working on my third baby blanket. I have learned how to knit from my co-operating teacher back in my student teaching days.
