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.

About Jane H.

I love hand crafts and was attracted to hand knitted items from an early age. I'm a qualified elementary school teacher, having taught both in London and Boston. I have also worked with high school students and adults in museum education, having a masters in Museum and Gallery Education.
I love knitting and enjoy learning new techniques and making lots of different knitted items. This has led me to set up knitting groups and teach on a one to one basis. I have taught beginners through to advanced knitters. I also test knit for knitting designers, as this often introduces me to new techniques and ideas, which enhances my own knitting.

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.

Jane helped me learn to bind off, weave in ends and wind a skein into a ball. She was very helpful and I am very happy with the result. I totally recommend taking lessons with her.

Working with Jane was very comfortable. She was encouraging and enthusiastic. She showed me how to pick up those sleeve stitches and left me feeling confident that I could continue the task on my own.

Jane was a lovely and kind. She taught with much patience as I continuously dropped stitches, she assure me and then use my mistakes to include another skill within the lesson. So, in this one-hour lesson I learned to knit, purl, decrease and undo stitches when I made a mistake! It was a really nice class!

I'm a beginner at knitting and Jane helped me with my first scarf, which I was able to finish in time to gift it to my partner for Christmas. I had turned a simple project into a complicated mess, and Jane showed me how to fix it. What a huge relief! She is so patient and kind, all in all, a great teacher. I highly recommend her!

I really enjoyed knitting with Jane. I was a complete beginner and she was very patient and helpful. As a result of my sessions with her I am much more confident and can now make progress on my own.
