Instructor Bio:
My name is Christine Adams, after living in southern NJ for over 40 years, my husband and I
retired to Fredericksburg area in 2012. Transitioning from the hectic life of running a family
owned manufacturing firm, to a quieter slower lifestyle, I decided it was time to try knitting. I fell
in love.

Within a year, I was working at my lys, and my knitting IQ grew in leaps and bounds. Six months
later taught my first class. Since I have taught basic beginner, different colorworks, brioche,
socks and steeking classes.

My goal is for my students to love knitting. I want my students to understand the how & why of
stitches, realize the when & where of the pattern and develop a knitter's eye & intuition. That
knowledge and confidence enables them to tackle techniques, projects and mistakes without
panicking and with confidence.
