Michelle Hunter considers herself fortunate to combine her two passions - knitting and teaching - into an exciting career. Taught to knit as a child by her grandmother, she discovered the joys of knitting. As an early education teacher, Michelle knit as often as her schedule permitted.

Knitting Temptations of Dublin, Ohio tapped into her skills to teach beginning knitting. A new career path was born!! One class led to another and soon Michelle left the preschoolers to teach knitting full time. Due to her natural teaching style, patience and enthusiasm, classes grew in popularity and became standing room only with long waiting lists. Being only one teacher with hundreds of students seeking attention, Michelle created online, high-quality video lessons. These numerous videos allow knitters access to knitting instruction 24/7.

Michelle’s professional videos and the store’s extensive addi TURBO needle orders caught the attention of the Skacel team.

Michelle is excited to partner with Skacel and present her video supported patterns in the Trekking Knit Along beginning January 1, 2011. Check out knitpurlhunter.com to see why her classes and patterns have become a mini sensation. Of course, the fabulous prizes offered by Skacel are reason alone to join the knit along.
