Ellen has been published in numerous crochet magazines and has written two books, Go Crochet!

I am going very slowly and practicing AT LEAST 5 minutes a day, as the instructor suggests. I am seeing improvement in the looks of my stitches in my second week of viewing the class, which gives me hope that I will eventually produce something beautiful. I love the online format because you can go back over and over to make sure you understand an instruction or to see where you may have missed something.

I have very basic knowledge with crochet and knitting, this lesson was very good in how she explained everything and then going over it again. At this time I have not done any of the projects, but will when I find all my needles.

I love this online class. However, I am left handed and had a little trouble following along with the second project, but I finally got it. This also helped me correct some simple mistakes that I have made before. Will be viewing more soon.
