Are you looking to take up a new, relaxing hobby? Or maybe it's been a couple of years and you need a refresher? For the more experienced crafters, even if you just need help with a new project, I can get you where you want to be! With my guidance you'll be able to cast on and knit, and as time goes on you'll be creating wonderful garments in your own unique style. I specialize in sock knitting, colorwork, and pattern reading and writing, typically using my own books and teaching materials, as well as: printed material, online resources, YouTube videos, and podcasts. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels - so whether you're just starting out or want to learn something new, I'm your girl!

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."

SHE WAS GREAT! Dawn knows so much and help guide me in making a cute quilt for my son!
Winnie
Dawn is an awesome knitting teacher. She is patient, friendly, communicates well with my teenaged daughter. My daughter really enjoyed each lesson and learned a lot. Even though this is an online lesson, it really doesn't affect Dawn's teaching quality. I highly recommend Dawn to whoever is interested in learning how to knit.
Cheryl
I have been taking quilting lessons from Dawn for many months now and I have found her to be a kind, patient and compassionate teacher. She is so helpful between lessons with questions and has videos to help. Being an older student with medical issues comes with challenges but she faces them with grace and compassion.

Barbara was very sweet, explicit in her instructions, and the class was enjoyable. I unraveled the swatch we made and had no trouble replicating it hours later. The method she taught me is firmly in my mind and I “get it”.

super helpful and very nice!
Meredith
Barbara is delightful! She knows her crochet and she is excellent at solving puzzles such as I had: manufacturing a piece of my existing pattern to fit along a ragged edge. Can't go wrong with Barbara1

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. :)

Go at your own pace and have fun are my knitting mottos! I teach continental style knitting and have been teaching beginners to knit for over 5 years. Together we'll experience the excitement that comes when you cast on something new, learn a new stich, or finish a favorite project.

I'm can start with the basics (cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch) or jump straight into helping on a project you have planned (or started and got stuck on? don't worry - it happens to all of us!). There is no limit to the kind or number of projects we can do. I have plenty of project ideas and am always happy to help with your ideas, too.

About Nicole

My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 11 years old, and after taking a few years off I picked up the hobby again in my 20s. Now in my 30s I am an avid knitter - there are always several projects on my needles (I need one I can travel with, one I can do while watching TV, and usually one I'm ma

I love knitting, enjoying making a huge variety of items using many different techniques. I knit using the English style, having grown up in Cheshire, England, but also knit using the Continental style of knitting too. I have been teaching knitting in groups and on a one to one basis for a few years. My students have ranged in age from 8 years old to 80 years old.
If you need help with a specific project, learning a new technique or just starting out as a beginner knitter, please get in touch.

I think Jane will be able to help me through a gauge related knitting weak area I’ve had for years. I’m excited to get to the next lessons. She’s very knowledgeable and had at her fingertips anything we needed to keep digging for answers and examples. Couldn’t have asked for a better suited match for me.
