Page 11

“Knit school is perfect for everyone - from the experienced knitter to thenovice… I have been knitting all my life but I know that there are some things Ijust don’t do because I have always considered them too complicated, or timeconsuming. Since I joined I have learned a range of new techniques and skills that mean Ican now attempt patterns that I would never have considered before! I alsolike the fact that you can dip in and out of it depending on your schedule.There is no pressure to “keep up” which suits me perfectly as I already have alot of my plate. I urge you to join - it's worth every penny.” Abby P, Member since June 2020. "AS A LIFELONG CROCHETER IN FIRST LOCKDOWN I DECIDED A NEW CHALLENGE WOULD BETO LEARN TO KNIT. EVEN AS A CHILD I DIDN'T 'GET' KNITTING, CROCHET EASY BUT KNITTINGWAS A 'DARK ART' WHERE AMAZING JUMPERS, HATS AND SOCKS WERE MAGICALLY MADE. I JOINED THE SOCK CHALLENGE LAST AUGUST AND ENJOYED THE LEARNING AND MAKING SOMUCH I ENROLLED IN KNIT SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER. THE VIDEO TUTORIALS ARE FABULOUS AND DONE AT YOUR OWN PACE.
