"I have been struggling over a sweater pattern that I purchased. Numerous Youtube videos didn't help. Several communications with the person who wrote the pattern didn't help. The pattern maker was super nice, but just could not communicate how to execute her instructions (teaching is a skill). The pattern stressed me out, and my beautiful yarn was going to waste. The sweater is super cute, so I decided to get help. Jane H. was amazing! Aside from being a very skilled knitter, she is an excellent teacher. She is personable and goes beyond the pattern to tell you why a stitch is being done the way it is, so that you know what it's supposed to look like. She truly gives you a knitting lesson. Online was great because I could see her hands up close, letting me see precisely how a stitch is done as she explained it. She taught me everything I need to know to knit this pattern and I am so thrilled! I can now actually knit this sweater. Thank you Jane. You're the best."
