Crisann Morgan

Crisann Morgan Director of Development for the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival says: "CJ is the raddest of the rad knitting instructors. First she'll sit you down, cover you body with cool, silky drapey things so that you can knit comfortably in the sweltering Los Angeles summer and then she'll gently teach you how to cast on.

"Perfect!" she'll encourage, while your fingers struggle with the needles - making you forget that you look like a toddler with chopsticks and suddenly you have a row of cast on stiTches! Boom.

Then, strict task mistress that she is, she'll make you redo it a kermillion times until you've got in in your bones. Then on to the real deal. You'll actually knit! This will all happen in no time and then she's serving you something delicious to eat and saying something that makes you belly laugh...

Then she'll send you on your way with admonitions and encouragements and inspirations to go off and spend a few glorious Autumnal months with her hunky man and then when you see her again it will be like no time has passed, except you'll have finished your first scarf and she'll teach you how to sew it all together and look fabulous.

C.J., girl - you need to open up a school for the Yarny arts. I heart CJ."
