Are you looking to start or advance your skills in knitting? I am here to help! I am a Craft Yarn Council Certified Level 1 and 2 knitting instructor and teacher and have been working as a professional knitting instructor since 2010. I have experience working with students aged 8 through adult. Wherever you are in your knitting journey, whether it be learning the basics of knitting and purling or working on advanced skills such as intarsia, short rows, brioche, or double knitting, I am here to help you reach your knitting goals. Lessons are focused on the specific goals of the student. I am happy to work on your pattern of choice and can also recommend patterns based on your level and desired goals. I am also able to help with pattern interpretation and problem solving in knitting projects. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to speaking with you soon and sharing my love of this engaging and beautiful art form with you.

Want to improve your finishing techniques to make your sweater the envy of all your friends? Have you seen a project on Ravelry or Pinterest that you just love but are afraid it is beyond your skill level? Don't worry, you can call on me anytime to get you through a tough spot. I will even help you find, fix and prevent mistakes. I have been knitting since I was a teenager back in the mid-'80s. I am a published designer, CYC Certified Instructor with over 9 years teaching experience inspiring beginners and experienced knitters. Students are expected to provide all tools and materials but I will help you find what you need for your project. Recommend duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes.

I have a LOT of patience! All you need is the desire to learn to knit. If you never have knitted before, I will get you knitting. If you want to learn, but believe you can’t learn because someone told you can’t learn to knit, I will prove that you can knit. If you have knitted a long time ago, but forgot all of it or most of it, I will bring it back to you. If you already know the basics of knitting, but don’t know how to get beyond the simple knitted squares and rectangles, I can get you to the next level. If you know knitting basics, but gave up because you make a lot of mistakes, I will show you how to fix mistakes, so that mistakes don’t become traumatic. If you know the basics, but want to learn a different technique such as color work, cables, lace, or more, I can teach you. Do you have trouble reading patterns or charts, I can take the mystery out of them. Because of COVID-19, I mostly teach online for now. If you are vaccinated, I will consider teaching in person within 6 miles of where I live, (Massachusetts). I use Zoom for my teaching platform only. Please get familiar with Zoom on the device you will be using before coming to your lessons. Every devilce works and looks differently and I’d rather be teaching knitting than how to use your computer and the Zoom app. “Online” 30 minute sessions are permissible for only students that are comfortable with the basics: cast on, bind off, knit stitch, purl stitch. If you are an absolute beginner, I recommend the first 1 or 2 lessons to be 2 hours long. After, that any time slot, (30, 60 or 90 minutes) will be fine. I look forward to meeting you!

I started out very slow, but caught on to knitting/casting on and Bonnie was helpful and patient with me.
