Get to know Johnna, Knitting Instructor Extraordinaire

When someone asks me "Do you know anyone that teaches knitting?" the name comes to mind, Johnna Lush. She has a wonderful infectious laugh and a way of explaining things that just makes since.  She has a few upcoming classes like Magic Loop Socks, so why don't we get to know her.

Who are you?

I am Johnna Lush. I live in NE Mpls with my husband and a 25 pound, 17-year old chihuahua mix breed named Jane. I am a Poli Sci graduate from the University of Kentucky who is currently a mail carrier. Oh, and professional yarn smeller!!

How long have you been sewing, knitting, etc?

I taught myself knitting in 2005, and have been compulsively knitting ever since.  I love stranded knitting, entrelac and knitting shawls. I have no love for intarsia. I dream of road tripping to sheep and wool festivals around the country (and New Zealand too)!

What is your background in teaching?

Started teaching at CP in 2011 (I think). Have taught all types of knitting and can't believe I get paid to get other people knitting!! 

Here's Johnna (black tshirt) Teaching our recent colorwork class. Her students made some pretty cool stockings.

If you can't make any of the prescheduled classes Johnna also teaches one-on-one. Just shoot us an email with what you would like to learn.
