Knit & Crochet Lessons

25


25 simbi per session

For Befinner and Intermediate knitters and Crocheters:

I can help you learn:
Increases/decreases (Shaping)
Color changing
Cables
Faire Isle
Intarsia
Double-knitting
Brioche
Shadow knitting

I have worked a wide variety of items from scarves, blankets and washcloths to stuffed animals and baby clothes, dog sweaters, human sweaters, slippers, cat and dog toys, rugs, and the list goes on.

I have a lot left to learn, and I believe that teaching you, will help me learn even more.

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.

Availability & Preferences


I live a second-shift lifestyle, so noon to midnight usually any day.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

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 more
