Knit & Corchet FIRST Lesson
I will take the pain and frustration out of trying to learn to knit and/or crochet.
I have taught several people how to knit and crochet in less than an hour.
One of them has become a full-fledged fiber artist who is spinning and dying her own fibers among other things.
Everyone that I have taught is till using their needles and hooks for their own hobby enjoyment.
Training & Qualifications
I spent 10 years trying to learn to knit and crochet.
I have purchased dozens of books ranging from kids learning books up to Vogue professional books.
I have gone to yarn shops and tried to learn from little old ladies who made me feel incompetent and lost patience with me.
It wasn't until my husbands mother gave me a 'needlework encyclopedia' from the early 1900's, that it finally all made sense.
Because of all that time being frustrated, I know what it means to try and learn something that other people do not have the patience to teach clearly.
I am so sure that I can teach anyone these skills, that I will happily meet for free for your first hour.
Availability & Preferences
I live a second-shift lifestyle - so Noon-Midnight almost any day.

About Sandy Atkinson
I am a Kidney Transplant recipient 2014. In the years leading up to kidney failure, I taught myself to knit so that I would still be productive when the day came that I would be too sick to work. ... I take great joy in expanding my skillset and creating new items that I have never made before. I write many of my own patterns and tend to modify existing designs to fit the personality of the person who is receiving the item. It brings me joy to knit and crochet anything that someone will love.show moreOpen to other proposals
