About the instructor

Jody McCleary has been a graphic designer for many years but has returned to university to pursue her dreams of becoming an art educator. Most of her artwork is rooted in portraiture with personality. But do not be misled, this is not where her interests end. She is a fool for all things knit! After learning to knit from a great group of people at the L.P. Fisher Library in Woodstock, she quickly accelerated her interest to stretch beyond the mitten. Jody has knit dozens of pairs of socks using this method and has worked out a simple formula to have you on track to making a perfect fit every single time...PLUS both socks are identical so no 'second sock syndrome'!
