I have arranged to have a knitting tech editor review my knitting patterns to ensure their accuracy, consistency and clarity. This will take some time, so I am asking those of you who are eager to begin using my patterns to hang in there a little bit longer !

UPDATE:

Thanks !

Jann

Stay tuned !

Tech Editing in Progress

While I plan to include tutorials on some topics, I suggest using the immense library of “knitting-knowledge” available on “YouTube” for basic to advanced “How To” and “DIY” instruction. Now that I am retired, I am happy to have the opportunity to share some of the things I have learned over the years. I hope we can learn something from each other and have some fun doing it !

Recent global events have made it practically impossible to continue selling my knit goods at Craft Fairs and other retail outlets. So, I have been devoting my time designing original knits with original patterns with the express purpose of providing beginning knitters with small, easy to make, inexpensive projects.

The main purpose of this website, outside of having a lot of fun, is to provide a resource for beginning knitters. The site also lets friends and family know what I am up to !

Hi, my name is Jann. I started knitting over fifty years ago when I was a freshman in college. I knew nothing about knitting, but I wanted to learn. This was before “YouTube” so if you wanted to learn how to do something you had to read books, unless, you could find someone to “show you how”. While I did learn a lot from friends and relatives over the years I mostly taught myself.

Welcome

Happy Knitting !

Jann

What “retail websites specializing in knitting patterns” are you using to display your products. I couldn’t find a link.

I am hopeful my knitting patterns will be available on three top retail knitting websites very soon. Stay tuned !
