Extra-super amazingly cute

I had a knitting program at the library for kids last weekend. I forgot to take pictures, but it was a lot of fun. We taught 15 boys & girls how to knit. It was really tough. We had 4 adults in the room, but I think that we could have used more. Most of the kids needed a lot of support ... obviously. The project was a knitted bookmark with some beads to embellish. They used Lambs Pride Bulky yarn in a variety of beautiful colors! The good news is that I have heard feedback from some of the kid's parents that they are still knitting at home. YAY!
