From time to time, my Ladies With Balls
This past week, I have been getting ready to help them learn how to do a mitered square. For me, the ex-teacher, that means dissecting the process to death. Dissecting the process until I learn how to take it apart, see it from beginning to end; see it from easy to complicated; see it from overview to specifics, see where it means to take me and how I should best get there. I take out all the big words, make sure I begin at the beginning and make sure I walk step by step through the dark unknown to the well-lit 'Ahaa! moment. That I hope, will lead all knitters to the finish line, happy and frustration free.
To that end, I have notes for them
Some want only to learn the technique while others want to learn the technique then apply it to a pattern. A successful lesson should soon give me some Mitered Square project pictures to show you.
I personally know multiple knitters who, several years ago, fell down the mitred square hole and have never been seen or heard from again! Dangerous ground those squares. Warn your students to be careful!
