After School Knitting!
We bring to our knitting who we (you!) are ancestrally and historically - so all of those occasions in which your knitting was twisted, too tight, too loose or felt as those you had two left hands - you were fine. It is the approach - there are over 20 different knitting techniques found around the world, not including right and left handed knitting -- embrace who you are as a knitter. It takes me about 5 minutes to know why type of knitter you, come to a class. Let's knit so you achieve your goals. Knitting is not about me, and it should never be abut the instructor, knitting is about you, your goals, and for you to learn in parts. Be you, be only you as a knitter. Just because your family and friends knit one way does not mean that it is your way and or approach to knitting.
Engineering and mathematics are found in knitting. Knitting is structural - a foundation (casting on) is needed. Then, we building one stitch at a time.
Regardless of your age or gender be a knitter, knitting gets the cobwebs chugg'n and aid in being focused in and out of the classroom, it is a great physical therapy during lunch time, 5 to 10 minutes away from work to refocus, for kids to sharpen their creativity and to be more present in class.
Put electronics down and pick up knitting needles, get to know your class and officemates, neighbors and your family.
I love knitting, it is my hope to use knitting to bridge people together through non-profits, working with veterans, providing after-school to knitting to kids, lunchtime knitting or decompressing, meditation and physical therapy, working with seniors (maybe if I am lucky AARP and the like), if you know of an organization that wants to bring knitting into their atmosphere, drop me an email.
