"I tried teaching myself to knit, rather unsuccessfully, from a variety of YouTube videos. The quality wasn't that great, and it was a bit of a struggle at first. I was so irritated that I couldn't learn from home that I sucked it up, rounded up some friends, arranged for private lessons, and spent my evenings working on a lace blanket."
We're so glad Kristin was able to finally find access to a knitting education - if only KnitCrate Newbies were around at that time! The end result is heartwarming: "Knitting helped me fall back in love with the world, it saved my life, and it just might save yours too" and she is even teaching knitting online now...way to go Kristin!
