I've decided that it would be beneficial to the audience and friends of MissNissCraftworks to offer some simple tutorials on basic knitting and crocheting. Personally, I'm a learning who likes to see and do, rather than just read. If you're like me, this will be AWESOME! Of course I'd love you to buy all your items through me, but I also realize there comes great joy in being able to do it yourself, too! Part of the reason I started MissNissCraftworks was as a creative outlet. I am constantly amazed by the craftwork I do and get great pleasure from a finished product. I want YOU to have that sense of accomplishment, too. :)
Over Christmas I was able to begin to teach a friend the basics of crochet. I didn't get to have a lot of time with her and feel that was unfortunate. I've also heard LOTS of stories from people who learned to chain from their Grandmother or someone else, but that's as far as they got in their studies. So, these videos are for all you as well!
I find the most beautiful thing about these videos is that it will allow you to learn at your own speed, by stopping and playing the video, and also give you a resource that you know will always be there!
As I begin these videos, I will offer you the basics. Explained and demonstrated to the best of my abilities. They should be pretty decent since part of my bachelor's degree is in teaching. ;) I hope to be able to offer more difficult stitches, concepts, techniques, and projects as the videos progress. Videos can be found easily on this blog in the 'videos' tab and on youtube. Don't forget to subscribe to the youtube channel, like the shop on facebook, and follow on twitter!
