Reaching out

The students in my Craft Wisely class have been busy ... but that hasn't stopped them from blogging and podcasting.  Check out what they're writing about.  Pick a link, click in, read, and leave a comment.  Your brief message will reinforce the nature of blogging for them.  They're writing for a vast unknown audience, and when you pop up and identify yourself, they can't help but be reminded of that.
  • Kate writes about knitting beards -- and an unlikely congruence with a running joke in her family.
  • Natasha reminds us that the creativity of designers is all around us, and is intimately connected with the creativity of makers.
  • Anna finds solidarity, community, and strong connections in the example of Burning Man.
  • Adrea meditates on the unusual interest her knitting arouses among her family and friends.
  • Ariel reveals the man and the grieving that inspired a very special hat.
  • Eric comes out of the closet as a knitter (we always knew!) and looks back to describe the shape of the closet.
  • Kirsten shows us some beautiful examples of illusion knitting.
  • Sara interviews a state senator about her knitting habits.
  • Shannon introduces us to the baby who will receive a very special blanket and labor of love.
  • Kat risks becoming a crazy cat lady and develops a passion for crocheted flowers.
  • Christabel shares the experiences that taught her why to give.
  • And the Craft Wisely podcast rolls on with conversations about our class texts, discussions, and projects.
Thanks in advance for visiting and commenting!
