Hi! I'm Becca.
I'm the wife of a veteran and mom of 3 kids. While our time as an active-duty family has come to a close, the adventure continues! We loved our last duty station so much that my husband got a civilian job in the same place: Camp Humphreys, Korea!
I now also homeschool the kids (possibly the biggest plot twist of my life) and am trying to get the rest of my family to learn Korean so I don't have to translate all the time.
Teaching knitting is one of my very favorite things. If you're in my area, be sure to sign up for my emails to be the first to know about classes, and if not, sign up anyway for tips and tricks.
I learned to knit when I was 12 years old, with a little help from my mom and a lot of time spent with various knitters' handbooks and magazines from the 1960's that my grandma gave me. I would spend hours on my hot pink bean bag chair, poring over various stitch patterns and techniques, knitting swatch after swatch, determined to master all the techniques.
That was all well and good, but I didn't get around to really making things until much later. When I finally started attempting to knit wearables, I realized I still had a lot to learn. I didn't fully understand gauge, or yarn weights, or how to curate a yarn collection that works for me. (That one is a recent development)
Now I use these experiences to help others skip the nonsense and start their knitting practice with a solid foundation and a clear vision for where they're going.
Be sure to visit the blog for lots of information about knitting and yarn.
