Alexis Clifton, Senior Instructional Support Specialist in CIT at SUNY Geneseo has been knitting since college.
“The best tactile sensation in the world is feeling just-worked knitting stitches gather under my right hand, then sending them in a group down along the needle.”
Amanda Schmidt, Digital Humanities and Learning Coordinator in the Center for Digital Learning learned to knit from Alexis and Suann.
“When I found out that I was going to have my first nephew back in 2018, it was bittersweet, as I don’t live local to his family. I wanted to learn to knit so that he could always have something from me to make us feel close. Best decision ever!”
Suann Yang, Associate Professor of Biology at SUNY Geneseo, was taught many crafts by her mom but only knitting stuck. If you see her in a sweater you can bet it’s handmade. Starting a Tempestry project at Geneseo was her idea!
“I think that the endless reward of knitting is magical: the joy in the making of a knitted object, and then the wearing or giving of it.”
