Lisa Hoffman Knits

Directed Knitting is a class, taught by Lisa Hoffman, that guides students through projects from conception to completion. A student can work at their own pace at their own level, or choose a project as a group to work at the same time. Students are encouraged to learn a new skill with each project, becoming more confident and capable through their experiences in the class. We have a Facebook page to promote the class, to share students completed projects as well as WIPs (works in progress), and to collaborate on ideas for new and exciting designs to knit/crochet and techniques to learn.

5/7/18  Three talented students doing a KAL for the Sand Waves Poncho by Norah Gaughan in beautiful June Cashmere. They are reading charts, using lifelines and progressing nicely. I am so proud!

2/1/18 Its February...middle of winter, cold and dreary in NYC. Luckily our knitting with beautiful colors and fibers, and great friends, can certainly cheer us up! This week we had a record number of students under the String chandelier for Directed Knitting, working on some awesome projects. Some students are finishing up beautiful lace and cable pieces, some are in the midst of sweaters, some are starting baby blankets for new arrivals. The table was buzzing with news, sharing of ideas, and show & tells. 

10/15/17   I got a "shout out" on the weekly String email....

If you are local to NYC, or even just visiting for a few weeks, and interested in joining my class, please click the link above.

Each week I send out a short email to all registered students with updates on current and future projects by myself and the participants, sometimes adding some personal thoughts and news happening in my personal as well as knitting life, along with information on upcoming classes and events at String.

6/10/19  I am so proud of my students. It is such a thrill to watch them gain confidence as their knitting skill improve. Here are a few recent finished projects. 

10/3/18   I have just redesigned the "Directed Knitting News" email that I send to my students. It will be coming through Constant Contact rather than my gmail account from now on. To the right is a pic of the new header. I love the bright orange!

It will now go out weekly, with information on classes, student works, fun things going on at String and the local NYC knitting community.

The newsletter goes out to current students as well as all past students  who have been enrolled in class. If you are enrolled and not receiving the email, please let me know.

As well, if there is anyone not enrolled that would be interested in being on my email list, please contact me and I will be happy to add you. 

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in March, Directed Knitting has gone totally virtual on Zoom.


As well, I have added new groups of "Virtual Knitting" via the Stringyarns.com website.

Virtual Knitting is FREE and open to everyone.

You are welcome to join us.

The zoom links are available at class times from the Classes & Events page here
