Many of you may already know Jane Prater. She is very well known in the Charlotte Knitting Community. Prior to Charlotte Yarn, she taught classes at the Sewing Bird. We are very lucky to have her a part of the Charlotte Yarn team. Jane teaches classes and private lessons at the shop. You will also find her working in the shop from time to time helping out.
For those who do know Jane as well, I wanted to give you the opportunity to get to know her.
Jane has been teaching something to someone since before I was born. She has focused obsessively on knitting since the early 1990’s. She has been taught by the best—Melville, Chin, Devine, Neatby, Strick, Bush, Brown-Reinsel, Fisher, New, Saarnit, to name a few. The best class ever was on making the sweater fit and was taught by Rick Mondragon, editor of Knitters. Jane went to Scandinavia with Interweave Knits and to Greece with Knitters. She has completed Level 1 of the The Knitting Guild Association Master Knitter program and is procrastinating with Level 2. Jane’s philosophy of teaching is ripped right out of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s books: Relax, it’s just string!!!
Jane is also currently the President of the Charlotte Knitting Guild.
To get in touch with Jane to schedule a private lesson or have questions about her classes, you can email her at email@example.com.

You can spin the bunny's fur into angora yarn. Angora is very fine and warm. As natural fiber, it breathes, allowing body moisture to escape, keeping the wearer dry, as well as warm. It is ideal for winter clothing. Many people who find sheep's wool too irritable and scratchy, find Angora a wonderful alternative for warmth and comfort. So the next time you reach for that beautiful angora yarn, think of Sherbet.

A customer loved Natalie's scarf so much that she made her own longways scarf. She used yarns that complemented each other and had various textures. Her scarf turned out fabulous!!! This just proves that you can take several yarns and mix them together to make a unique and wonderful creation.
