Bob Walls Guest Knitting Instructor Biography

Icon Wrap KAL in
New Shibui Birch Yarn
Bob's love for knitting began 26 years ago when his doctor said he should consider knitting to stave off the arthritis that was starting to take over his hands.  So, after a 20-minute instruction on "this is how you cast on stitches, this is how you knit a knit stitch, and this is how you purl a purl stitch", he started his first project; the yellow sweater pictured!  Color knitting is Bob's passion.  He spends most of his time knitting for others and teaching various color techniques.  And he's a really good cable knitter.  Some of his personal projects are pictured. 

When a student is intimidated by a project, too much color, too many fibers, too many cables, etc. he reminds them that knitting is very simple!  It is one stitch at a time and the pattern/directions tell you what that stitch is, and one row at a time!  And, before you know it you have a finished masterpiece! 

Since his retirement 3 years ago Bob has been working to downsize his extensive stash by knitting for his great nephews and nieces!  Okay, a few for himself and his partner, as well!  He also works part-time (remember, he's retired!!!) in a knit store and teaches whenever he gets the opportunity.

We look forward to seeing you in Bob's Color My Cowl Knitting Class!
