About KnuttinButYarn

hired 3 times on Thumbtack

Winter is the time of year to be curled in front of the fire with a ball of yarn and a hook or needles in your hand. Hi, my name is Jennifer Ryan, and I own a small shop on Etsy. I want to teach you what I can do. Knitting and crocheting is a skill, a craft that you can teach further generations. I have been crocheting for over 18 years and knitting for nearly two. Check out my Etsy shop at Knuttin But Yarn to see what I can do and what I can then show you to do. Classes are one to two hours and only cost $10 per class. Beginner classes will include getting started, understanding weights of yarn, overview of the notions (needles, and hooks), and how to read patterns. I also work full time so I am available evenings and weekends. Contact me directly at my email address KnuttinButYarn.yahoo.com. Thanks again.

    Jennifer's page states that 1 to 2 hour lessons are $10.00. She sent me a quote for $20.00 a lesson. I'm not that stupid. Sorry.

    Jennifer is a very kind and gentle instructor. She is patient and very willing to stand with each student in her class to be sure they have their technique correct. At our class (group of 7 in a home), she gave instruction and then allowed us time to try it before moving on. She came prepared with take-home information so we would have help after the class. Her generous and patient nature make her a natural teacher to show us how to do what she loves!

    I am learning more about crocheting and Jennifer is a great teacher to work with. I am going to continue to work with Jennifer until I feel like I have learned what I want to know about crocheting.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Ask for examples of their work. Talk with them on the phone at first and ensure that this is a person that your personality will identify with. Make sure that this is a person with a lot of patience and exhibits know how of the craft.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. First they need to ask themselves how much time are they really wanting to put into the craft. Another question I would be asking once I met with the person is what are their goals. Are they looking to make this a side business or are they simply doing it for pleasure.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. My work is unique and and applicable to most people. Because I have a passion for what I do I know a lot about what I do. The great thing about my service is that there is always something new out there to know and see. I just want to pass along this amazing craft at an affordable rate to others.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. It is a creative outlet. For the longest time I didn't think I had one. Then last year I learned how to read patterns and from there I was hooked pardon the pun ;)

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. A lot of customers who see my Etsy shop often ask me about how long it takes me to stitch up the items I make and I often tell them it simply depends on the item. For me personally crocheting doesn't take as long as knitting. Also size comes into play.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. My mother taught me to crochet before she died and I have been passionate about it for a while now. A couple of years ago my sister showed me how to ready patterns and to knit and it only enhanced my skill set and set me off on a fiber adventure I know I could never turn away from now.

Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.

A. I knitted my first sweater. It was a garment of my own design and I was completely on my own from the ground up. I don't suggest it but I learned a lot.
