Jane taught knitting at our Malvern Library for 3 years and runs a knitting website called What Jane Knits.
Anybody can knit, from an eight year old boy to a 96 year old woman.
My grandmother was a particularly crafty lady, very talented with lots of creative skills. So she taught me.
I only knitted as a child, and then I started again when I was about 35.
When I first started knitting, I knitted a tank top - a lacy type of summer thing. It was quite good, quite a cool knit really. My daughter, who's now 23, she wears it.
It's such an achievement to learn those skills then adapt them later on in your life.
A few years ago I started What Jane Knits and thought, “how can I reach more people because I really enjoy teaching people how to knit?”.
I spent 3 years teaching knitting at Malvern Library.
I’ve found that people who have never picked up knitting needles are very reluctant because they think they won't be any good at or that it's too hard. But you just need someone to gently show you how to do it. It's very rewarding teaching people how to knit.
