Tonight I’m getting ready for a course I am on at work tomorrow. I’ve to prepare a 10 minute training session on ANYTHING! I went for knitting since it’s interesting and fun, well I think so anyway, and I don’t think too many others will have chosen it.
I’m a little worried, as it’s only 10 minutes. I don’t think I will be able to cover much. I’m thinking I will get them to cast on a small number of stitches (perhaps 5) so that we will have time to do a good few rows and then I can call it a scarf. Sounds a little more interesting than a square… I think I will test it out on my sister for timing, but I actually think she will be quite a natural at it. It’s the unknown of how easy my trainee will find it that is stressing me out!
I also feel like I should be doing more to prepare. I’ve knitted a “here’s one a made earlier.” I might call it a scarf for a mouse or something.
I guess doing some of my own knitting is acceptable preparation, right? I mean, I know how to do it, so I’m not too sure how else to prepare for it. Just got to remember to take my supplies tomorrow! That would be embarrassing, I would have to improvise a little. Not sure what I would use for wool though. I’m thinking I could definitely use pencils for needles, but let’s hope it doesn’t come to that!
Well, wish me luck! And happy St Andrews day!
