I have loved my lessons with Carol and highly recommend them. The friendly, easy-going approach to learning is a tribute to Carol's knitting and yarn knowledge. Her experience and humour created an unpressurised learning adventure. Her emphasis on progress not perfection made mastering new skills more achievable.
Carol, and her beautiful lesson patterns and notes, was just what I needed to pick up knitting needles after a very long break. Confidence is returning and I am so grateful to Carol and the others in my class.
Carol is a brilliant teacher, encouraging and easy to understand. She helped me understand how to fix incorrect stitches and finish my work properly, all of which I had struggled with in the past. She was incredibly friendly and positive- it really made me enjoy the process of making which in the past I found a little frustrating due to a lack of understanding. I would without doubt recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn how to start knitting in the round- YouTube is absolutely not a substitute for real life teaching and the skills I learnt from Carol in 2 lessons would have taken infinitely longer watching and stopping very confusing tutorials (I tried a lot- none of them compare to learning in person).
Do not hesitate to contact Carol for lessons!
I can't believe I could learn knitting at the very first lesson! I find it so relaxing.
It was a great activity to do together with my daughters. It improved their ability to focus on one activity while discovering this new handcraft activity. We developed simple projects that can be finished in a few hours, like a small purse or hair accessories. Carol is a great teacher, I highly recommend her lessons!
In love with the options, colours, and cosiness! New favourite yarn shop/lounge. Will be here often for a coffee, a skein, and a knitting break :) So so happy with my first purchase! Carol, the owner, is one of the nicest people out there and has put so much thought and care into bringing this place together!
Had a lovely time at the opening of Knit With Me. The atmosphere was great and everyone was so friendly. Fantastic yarn selection, so there was no chance of me walking away empty handed! Hope to visit again soon.
Carol has created the warmest and friendliest yarn shop going! The wool is fantastic and reasonably priced. She stocks some really fun brands in amazing colours. She seems genuinely interested in supporting people to love knitting. It’s a really happy place and a “must visit” for all knitters in Richmond.
Absolutely beautiful little shop with the friendliest owners. Gorgeous yarns and can’t wait to do a workshop in their lovely upstairs space. Wish I lived nearer as I’d be visiting every week!!!
Beautiful space, a lovely and unique selection of yarns, many of which I’ve only seen online with expensive international shipping and not previously available in UK, like De Rerum Natura!! There’s lots of nooks and spaces to quietly knit and chat to the owner Carol, and a lovely upstairs room with a yarn winder and a big table for the workshops/knit nights. A must visit for any woolly needs.
