I had 2 groups, and we had a good time. It's funny : what is so easy to me, can be so difficult to somebody else. Some were quick learners and finished the cover during the workshop, some needed a bit of help and I finished their cover at home. The kids made me smile : the way some of them handled the knitting needles was hilarious. There even was a boy who invented a whole new technique ! And there were kids who took it very seriously, and who were proud about the knitting they could show at home !
Anyway, I had a good time, and I think they did too. One of the pupils took pictures with his camera, but I haven't received them yet. I will post them as soon as I get them on email.
What also amazed me, was the size (and price) of their mobile phones. I saw a lot of smart phones, LG cookies are popular amongst the young, and the apple stuff they have is amazing. I have a plain ordinary Nokia, I use just as a phone. Texting a message I find annoying, all those small buttons.... I am definately from an older generation....
These are the covers they made :
|they chose nice funky colours|
|a lot of inspiration, a lot of designs|
|The boys went for the darker colours|
|All phones have different sizes.|
|Some are knitted, some are crocheted|
