Jane Prater

Charlotte knitties-in-the-know love Jane Prater.  In this area, she's a yarn legend. I took my first class with Jane last night @ Charlotte Yarn and now I understand why.

Her custom-knitting class teaches how to knit from the top down, but more importantly, how to make your sweater fit like a Jermyn Street bespoke shirt.  

The Charlotte Yarn advert looked like this:

If it isn’t custom fit to your body, then it is just another sweater. Audrey Hepburn wore custom fit and so can you.

What's not to love about that? So maybe I'm prone to hyperbole, but Jane's a hoot & a 1/2 and she has a gift for making the complicated simple. At the end of class, I walked away wondering why I ever got so frustrated about something so silly.

Or as Jane says, lighten up.  It's just sticks and string.


  1. You are so sweet. Thank you a million times. Love the title of your blog--ah, Truman, I knew you when. No wonder you took this class.

    See you soon.

  2. Is it in that faboo color? Show us!
    I am a knitter too and it is all about fit and the yarn.

  3. Fabulous blog......makes me want to fly directly to Charlotte and take the class with you and Jane.

  4. Hi, I've been introduced to your lovely blog by Rachel over at "contented". Lovely close up shot of your yarn and nice colour.
