Thinkering Studio Project Proposal


Title:
Madeline and Carley's Cozy Arm Knit Scarf
Member(s):
Madeline, Carley
Challenge:
Making sure that all the yarn is in the right pattern, and that it is the right length.
Challenge Starters & Examples
Learning:
We expect to learn the basics for arm knitting.
How will you be challenged? The major challenge is to make sure the pattern is in order and that we don't mess it up.
How will this stretch you? (Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas.) This will give us a knew skill and may help us with other projects like this.
Materials:
  • Thick yarn
  • Needle
Main Steps:
Outline the main steps to complete your project or provide a link to another site that has the steps. Below the link explain any additional steps you need to complete. First we have to get the yarn on our arms in the proper way. Then Start Knitting in the right pattern. Then switch back and forth to each arm making the scarf longer. Then you do the final knit. Then you sew the ends together and you have finished.
How will you document your process/progress beyond your journal entries? We will Take pictures as we progress.
If this is not an individual project, how will you work together so that all are learning/working equal to their abilities? Roles? Accountability?We can help each other if we don't know how the pattern goes. Also the one of use needs to take the picture because the other one is knitting.
Time:
30 Minutes to an Hour
Resources:
List possible resources/sources of inspiration to complete this project. Are there existing examples of the sort of project you want to complete? Has anyone else done a similar project in Thinkering Studio? As far as we can tell no one else has done this exact project. A few people have done knitting but that is obviously very different from what we will be doing in our project because there is a whole different technique.
Who/what will be your "teacher"? (Outside expert, in class expert, book, video(s), website(s), Mr. Whitmer, experimenting, experience, etc.) Make sure your "teacher" is included in your steps. The internet and YOuTube and Google and GoogleImages.
We will develop our PLN's by watching videos on YouTube and we will also do ?
Difficulties:
What parts of this project might be difficult? How do you expect to handle them? I think The pattern is the hardest part because if you mess up one part the rest of the scarf won't look right.
Sharing:
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward - How will you share what you have learned with others? Who is your target audience? We will take picture of how to do this and somehow future out how to post that online.
Evaluation:
How will you/your group define the projects success? How should we evaluate your success? How will that be "visible" to others? (Demonstrate) Can your progress be measured throughout the project?A project will be success if we can get everything posted online and make at least 3 successful scarves. We also will have to take pictures and most likely post them onto the wiki.
(Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas or possibly Rubistar.)
Design your own rubric. Once we have a finished scarf and that meets satisfaction.
