LAKE WALES – Some Janie Howard Wilson Elementary reading classes entertained a special guest recently when master knitter Stephanie Carcano visited the students and taught them to finger knit.

Carcano talked about the materials needed for knitting, how yarn is made, what fibers it can be made of, and where knitters can get yarn. Her visit preceded a fourth grade reading story about a little girl who learns to knit from her aunt.


After Carcano talked to the students, she gave each student a small ball of yarn, and taught them how to “finger knit.”


“It was a great way for students to acquire a personal connection for the upcoming story. It was an experience that I’m sure they will not soon forget,” said fourth grade reading teacher Holly Smith.
