Habitual knitter with a love for all things yarn. I specialize in cuff-down socks, but can help a beginner knitter with whatever they need.
About the lesson
I'm excited that you're considering me as your knitting basics tutor! For our first lesson together, we'll share some of our favorite knits. It's okay if you haven't made anything; in that case, we can talk about your boundaries for knitting, what inspires you, and what you'd love to be able to make. If you are completely new to knitting, I can walk you through basic techniques including stitches, increases and decreases, slipped stitches, and cast-ons and cast-offs. If you have more experience, we can spend our lessons walking through patterns, brainstorming some of our own, or searching online for your ideal yarns and tools. No matter your newness to the craft, you can count on me to be patient. Everybody starts somewhere, and I'd love to help you along! I specialize in cuff-down socks, but can also help with tops, blankets, hats, scarves, shawls, mittens, and advanced stitch patterns.
I am an avid knitter with at least three projects going at all times. When I'm not knitting, I'm reading, cooking, making tea, writing, or playing my saxophone Charlotte. My two favorite projects are a pair of pride-striped, long socks and a white, cabled, pom-pom hat. Throughout my day, I prioritize patience, and I do my best to make sure I'll leave this world better than I found it.
