homework swatch still on the needles
non-slippery double-pointed needles (I’ll bring mine to loan for students who don’t have any.)
No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. I have a projector if the facilities can accommodate it. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.
