Although a long-time self-taught knitter, I found information in this class, such as the cable cast on, using a larger knitting needle in cast-offs very good. In teaching my granddaughters to knit, it is great to have these skills at hand and visual lessons.

Hi, I have only seen the introductory video but I am wondering if anyone can tell me if the knitting method in this video is also showing the Continental style of knitting, since I am a Continental knitter and am not familiar with the English version. Thanks.

Inge - This class uses the English style only.

I'm a beginner knitter and I'm pleased I took the time to do this class. It's very easy to understand and importantly, just as easy to do. My confidence as a knitter is growing along with my skills. A definite must for anyone.

Well this is for sure a must have class ... If your going to knit the beginning and end should look as good as the middle.
I have used this course more than several times already to make my project look nicer.
Yes this is one handy course to have.
Happy knitting
