Knowing how to knit really is badass…. Trust me I know!! I knit all day, everyday! But, it wasn’t always like this…I had zero crafting skills, and I barely knew what yarn was.
I had a lot trouble learning to knit, I was clumsy, awkward and was really really close to giving up!! Now, that I’m more than 7 years in, I am so happy I stuck with knitting. It has become my passion, my lifeline and my very favourite thing to do while watching netflix, Knitting has helped me so much, with anxiety, depression, and grief. I have gained so much confidence in myself since I learned to knit because I was able to create something with my own hands.
Nothing, beats the feeling of knowing you just knit that hat you are wearing. Theres a sense of pride and accomplishment that come with that.
That feeling of peace and confidence is what keeps me knitting. I get to be creative, and that honours my soul’s craving. Yes, I make really badass scarves, hats and slippers but, I get so much more out of it. The me from 7 years ago had no idea she was amazing gift she was about to give herself. If I could go back, I would tell that younger version of me not to be insecure, worried or stressed. That her awkwardness was a gift and she’s gonna grow up to be one BAD ASS KNITTER.
That’s why I create this course. I wanna teach people just like me. Those who are a little weird, awkward, creative and imperfect. If your willing to learn and want to see what knitting can offer them, if want to learn at home wearing you comfiest PJs then this is your course. You are meant to be a bad ass knitter.
Here is basic outline of what you will learn. Although, being the bad ass teacher I am, It may vary from this slightly if feel I need to add or expand on a topic to help you.
