Jenna Hycner - The Knitting Academy
I caught the knitting bug one day, more than 30 years ago, waiting on line in a grocery store and spotted a copy of Family Circle (or maybe it was Better Homes & Garden), which had a beautiful seed stitch cardigan sweater. ?That was it, I just had to knit it. I can?t remember where I got the supplies, but based on the pictures in the magazine, a sweater was born. One I can still wear today. Some say teaching oneself how to knit a sweater that would likely have been labeled intermediate to advanced was a challenge not to be taken, but I had no one to tell me I couldn?t do it ? not even myself. It is that attitude of fearlessness that I want to impart to my students.
Colorwork, such as fair Isle and brioche is some of my favorite work. I am also madly in love with entrelac. Knit garments with unusual construction will also catch my eye. In a class, find what you love to create. My teaching style is driven by showing you how to make decisions about projects, how to execute them well and really nail down a technique. Most classes will cover pattern reading, how to make modifications and how to hit the ?easy? button ? even if the project is hard.
