Hi there! I'm Emily and I have been knitting for 16 years. As soon as I became proficient, I started teaching my friends and family members how to knit. As a member of my church's knitting group, I have experience helping others with their projects, troubleshooting the challenging bits of patterns, fixing mistakes, and of course, teaching beginners.
I can teach you:
~The basics- casting on, knit stitch, purl stitch, binding off
~Finishing techniques - weaving in ends, blocking, seaming
~Advanced techniques - picking up stitches, cables, intarsia, increases, decreases, colorwork, circular knitting, etc.
~Project help - fixing mistakes, reading patterns
~Pattern, yarn and needle selection
I love teaching and sharing the wonderful skill of knitting with anyone who is interested in learning! I hope we can connect!
