Instructor: Kim Rees
Instructor Bio: When dinosaurs roamed the earth and before the internet and podcasts, Kim's grandmother taught her to knit at the age of 8. Her grandmother only knew how to knit slippers and dishrags. She quickly got bored with that menu and started to design her own knits. Bags, blankets, Scarves - all things square or rectangular. When she started making her own money babysitting, she would buy magazines with patterns in them and learned how to read a pattern and do increases and decreases. She knitted (and crocheted) her way through high school, much to her teacher's dismay. Kim started college as a Home EC major, taking a required weaving class, and immediately changed schools and majors. At Utah State University, Kim studied Art Ed with a fiber arts emphasis. She then took an independent study class from a master knitter and learned how to REALLY knit. It was like pouring gasoline on an already burning fire. For the past 50 years, Kim has taught Knitting, crochet, spinning, and quilting to hundreds of people, having fun spreading her love of the fiber world. Kim did her first colorwork sweater 42 years ago. That poor sweater took forever to finish because she had a hard time with the color changes. She didn't do another piece of colorwork until 5 years ago, when she just had to try something stranded again. Managing more than one strand is difficult when they are tangling and you're trying to manage the tension. Kim thought there should be a way of doing colorwork without profanity. So, she invented the Knit Assist Ring. Kim finally got a tool that made it possible to knit colorwork (and other knitting techniques) with ease. Now she loves colorwork and feels like she can teach you to love and enjoy it as well. See Kim's work on Instagram @knitassist or YouTube "quilt and digitize'
