I want to be an artist -Tokuko's Knitting Work History 4-

May 10, 2019

The Ochiai family came to Kanagawa via Osaka for only one month . I'm going to live in the city, but I don't know how long I can stay because of my husband's work. Therefore, I researched how to learn knitting efficiently in a short period of time. First of all, take the first grade of the knitting skill test test. So I decided to find a place where I could learn how to bring my designs to life.

After researching on the Internet, I found the classroom of Professor Yoko Tada, who was also a lecturer at a university in Aoyama. I studied here every week for about two years. I passed the 1st class without incident, but the fact that I was able to study like the needle knitting basic course that I am currently holding is very useful.
This is where I learned the art of creating my own designs. I am very grateful to my teacher.

Also, during this time, I met the world of overseas patterns. What was your shock when you first saw the Rowan magazine that you subscribed to ? Also, someone who studied with me told me about Ravelry, and we all bought a set of replacement needles from Hong Kong . Anyway, it was an advanced class, and every day was stimulating. I love knitting even more.

But I didn't just study. As a member of the Ochiai family, I have to earn money properly. After discussing with my husband, we decided that we could do whatever we wanted as long as we could bring in at least 60,000 yen per month. This leads to a good flow that makes me grow more.
