I am loving and using the classes I bought and have seen. Not a dull moment! I keep learning useful tips every time. It has been an enlightening experience of what I knew (right and wrong) and what I know now. Extremely happy with the courses.

I found the class to be organized, detailed and thorough, covering all the techniques that I needed to know. I have several sweaters that I haven't finished because I don't like finishing. Now I feel confident enough to go back and finish them. I know that I can watch the blocking and picking up stitches sections again and again to make sure I am doing it right. I can't believe how much easier it is once someone shows you. Carri takes her time and is very clear. She is an excellent teacher!! Thank you so much for offering this class at such a reasonable price! There are very few experienced knitters near where I live, so this has been a great opportunity. Many thanks!

I enjoyed the class and was very basic for beginner.
Would of liked to have her used a more updated sweater pattern , like a sweater wrap.
Photography was very good.

This class is well organized. I have found that I refer to this class for assistance on many different knitting projects. The additional tips provided are awesome! Sometimes in learning a new skill it seems as if there are so many" secrets" that no- one will share but Carri does.
