Do you remember learning to knit or crochet?  Do you remember who taught you?  Whether it was a family member or at a yarn shop we are sure you well remember the thrill of learning something new and the excitement about all the things you would be able to make.
At KnitPro we know how important it is that the skills of knitting and crochet are kept alive and we are always keen to support the wonderful teachers out there. So we thought we would highlight some of the fantastic resources available on line to help you pass on your skills to others.
