I am currently leading a Knit and Crochet Bible Study. We recently had our first session.
If you are about to lead a study, here is an idea that may help.
In my group everyone already knows how to knit and/or crochet. They are at varying levels, but each is working on a project.
Lesson 1 focuses on Jesus as the Foundation of our spiritual life. We are called to â€˜cast our burdens on himâ€. Along this line we must make our foundation strong when we â€˜cast onâ€™ or our projects will fall apart.
So we practiced different ways to cast on in knitting. Did you know there are multiple cast one methods?
The â€œlong tail cast onâ€ is the most popular. We reviewed that. Then we discussed â€œknit onâ€ and â€œcable cast onâ€. You can find a description of each of these on the knitty web site.
If you want to add the beginning of a crochet project, some techniques to practice could include the foundation single crochet.
In preparation for this I took some extra sets of hooks and needles and well as some scrap yarn from my stash to allow everyone to practice. I made sure all hooks and needles returned to me before everyone left.
I would love to hear what practical lessons you have used in these sessions. Tell me about them. Share your suggestions to help others planning their first sessions.
