I can help beginning knitters sort out things like needle sizes, types of yarns to use and good starter patterns.

I have taught at Michael's Craft store as a knitting instructor and have done private lessons as well. I enjoy knitting in public and am rarely found without my knitting needles or crochet hook sticking out of my purse. My favorite items to knit are baby blankets and scarves.
