"I guess I'll learn to knit because it's too cold to go outside." This is what all seven of the little boys said when they joined the lunchtime knitting club. Middle school boys are so funny! I had to come up with a rhyme to help the kids remember how to make the knit stitch. Since they thought my traveling to Norway just to knit and look at trolls was cool, here is the knitting rhyme I came up with. "The troll dives into the cave and out through the back, Runs around the rock, and jumps over a crack! Stick your staff in the cave and hook him by the knee, Pull him out, pull him out, Opps! He's jumped free!"

Learning to knit? How about hunting trolls!
I'm volunteering to teach knitting at my local school to middle school kids. It's part of a knitting club that was formed. What fun! Seriously, it really is!
