About the Author

Astor Tsang believe in demystifying knitting and crocheting. Knitting is not rocket's just yarn and a couple of sticks! She adapt her teaching to her students' style of learning because when it comes to knitting...there is no one "right" way. Doing what works for you is just fine. She observes her students struggling to discover what part of knitting they do not understand. Her job is to help them see the problem and the solution in a way that makes sense to them. One little girl couldn't remember all the steps for making a stitch. So Astor had her make up a story. Her story went like this: "The hamster peeks out of the cage. You lasso him. He goes back into his cage. And he runs away."She trys to instill confidence to get her students to try new things (other than another scarf). She encourages people to think "outside of the box". All things are subject to interpretation that's what makes a project uniquely yours.And most important of all...she shares her passion for knitting and all things yarn.
