You bring yarn (4 1/2 oz. skein of sugar and cream 100% Cotton yarn) and needles (pair size 7 or 8, short ones are easier to work with) and you leave with the pattern and the know how to begin your own projects.

As a long-time knitter and 8th grade English teacher, I know that to learn a skill you need to hone your excited energy and jump right in with personalized guidance. I can help you learn to revel in the knitting process while also creating stunning, hand knit scarves, socks (yes, socks!), shawls (even the Wingspan shawl), and hats to start or continue in your knitting journey. I will be sure to craft our lessons to be exactly what you need to grow and flourish. We will figure out what you need in an informal, "chill" environment to truly benefit from the stress relief that is knitting. Send me a message and I will get back to you ASAP!
