Knitting for Beginners and Improvers
Learn to knit in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Because I can only accommodate small groups (maximum of six) it is possible to give individual attention to each member of the group. So, whether you are a complete beginner and don’t know one end of the needle from another and consider knitting patterns to be written in a foreign language, or you can knit already but would like some help to master a new technique (fairisle/aran/lace etc.) please get in touch.
