About the course
Have you ever looked at someone knitting away and thought to yourself "I wish I could do that!"?! Well, with this course you can!
In this course we'll learn what I call the Four Core of knitting:
- Casting on
- The Knit Stitch
- The Purl Stitch
- Binding Off
We'll also look at different kinds of needles, different kinds of yarns, and various methods for holding the yarn in your hands as you work along, we'll look at ways to mix your stitches together in order to create a textured fabric, and how to increase and decrease your stitches in order to shape your item. Tips and tricks galore, and the various jargon you'll need to walk into any knitting group with confidence, you'll be feeling like a pro in no time!
About The Instructor
Sarah learned to knit and crochet at age 6. Soon after she learned to hand sew, followed a few years later by learning to use a sewing machine. From a young age she showed an affinity for needlework and the fiber arts, which she pursued throughout her life, at one point being a seamstress for hire (with a costuming credit on a Sundance Film). Sarah has worked professionally as a sample knitter for Classic Elite, Lorna Miser, Marianated Yarns, and many local designers. She has taught and designed for Michael's, and has been a designer and knitting instructor since 2001. She's active in the knitting and spinning guilds in her community, and has served as president of the Salt Lake Knitting Guild. She now serves as an administrator on the board of the Great Basin Fiber Fair.
Sarah has picked up more hobbies along the way including quilting and weaving, and she can't seem to stop. She lives near Salt Lake City, Utah, with 9 sewing machines, a massive inheritance of fabric, her four darling children and a very foxy husband, who is incredibly understanding about all the fabric, yarn, and roving stuffed into every corner of the house.
