Are you interested in learning the tactile process of creating fabric from yarn and needles? Do you walk into a yarn store, squishing the fiber and wishing you knew what to do with it? Have you tried to self-teach with Youtube videos, only to walk away frustrated? I have experienced all of these feelings, and I am here to help! In our individualized sessions, we will discuss your knitting goals, find patterns that fit your crafting ideals, and learn the building blocks to create magic!

About Olivia

I am an experienced knitter who took a big break in my knitting career! I learned the basic stitch at age 6 in a handwork class at Waldorf School, and I knit my first pair of socks in 4th grade. I put my needles down after eighth grade to focus on academics, but after college I was back at it. I bec

With over 10,000 downloads of my published knitting patterns and a flawless five-star rating I'm sure I can find a solution to what a

My first lessons with Elizabeth was great - we covered some crocheting techniques, that as a self taught crocheter, I wasn't familiar with. Looking forward to my continued work with her!
Prasanna
Elizabeth did an excellent job helping me learn a new technique in our very first lesson! I'm excited to keep working with her to develop my "crochet tool kit."

I believe knitting is a wonderful skill and a great, relaxing way to pass the time. Whether you are a beginner or a past knitter looking to review the basics, I would love to help! I do my best to adapt my teaching style to the student so that there is as little frustration as possible. Above all, I want my students to enjoy learning and give them a solid base to advance their skills.
I teach a few basic stitches and techniques such as:
- regular knit stitch
- purl stitch
- casting on
- casting off
- stockinette
- rib stitch

Almost any size needles and yarn should be fine.
I also recommend bamboo or wooden knitting needles (rather than metal) for first-time beginners but not a requirement. We will work with what you have. Most importantly, I hope you enjoy learning and develop an appreciation for the art of knitting. :)

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 ...

About Amy

I am extremely patient and determined to teach anyone with a desire to knit or crochet, no matter how high or low their individual learning curve seems to be. I believe that if you have the desire, then you can learn. The speed in which you learn may be different than the next person, but, that is o

I really enjoyed how we spent so much time on the basics. Amy never rushed me along and answered all my questions. I loved my beginner lesson.

Amy is a very helpful teacher. She made sure to answer all my questions and concerns.
I appreciate how she collected all the necessary information beforehand in order to be fully prepared for the class. Thank you Amy!!

Amy, I am so appreciative of your time with my daughter this summer to teach her how to crochet! I am in awe of how far she has come, and I love to see how proud she is of her new craft. Her room is filling with stuffies and she has made three different sized bags to tote her things to friends’ houses. Thank you for your patients and skillful teaching!

I've been teaching knitting for 10 years and my students have gone on to create bags, scarves, headbands, and bracelets. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to complete a headband or scarf and as time goes on you'll be able to knit a hat in the round. I specialize in working with heavy weight yards and creating a funky, wildly textured projects. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

"Ok - this was incredible. I go in with a really wonky purl stitch and she was able to recognize what I was doing wrong! I thought I was knitting/purling continental style and she noticed it wasn't that at all - but Norwegian knitting/purling and got me on the right track. I would recommend her in a heartbeat, I have been to two other in person instructors with little success and she was able to fix my problem over zoom!"
