Funky Knit @Hwa Chong Institution (College)

It's been more than a week since my last update... been busy juggling with workshops, classes, replying emails on workshop enquiries & rushing orders. Yup, it's all been happy hardwork, no doubt about this, so I'm definitely NOT complaining ;P

30 young Funky Knit Newbies came onboard our knitting journey last Tuesday & Wednesday. Hwa Chong Institution (College) engaged Knotty Bicsie to conduct a post-exam activity for the JC1s as part of their Sabbaticals Program. We had 15 students each day, & we were all busy wriggling our fingers from 9am-3pm on both days :) This time, besides my mum, I've also hired 1 of our Funky Knitters, Amy, to help conduct the workshop, since Amy was a student from Hwa Chong Institution too ;) Amy sure was a great help! O, & she's making full use of this new experience as a knitting instructor - she's writing a research paper on the various ways knitting is being taught to inculcate this culture in Singapore! How cool is that! ;) Mum & Amy, thank u so much for your good work done! :)
