You probably know that yesterday was Earth Day (I hope you know that!). As part of an Earth Day celebration locally, I did a spinning demonstration/ sustainable fibers discussion Friday at Freshwater Elementary & Charter School. Eight groups of 20-40 K-8 students later, and I was exhausted. How do teachers do it day in and day out?!? But the day was a success; the kids seemed to enjoy themselves and I spun a single that will be for sale at COLORBOMB Creations later this week, called 'Eco-Groovy'. For a preview, check out this knit sample.
