Thank you! That was a very thorough and clear class. Lovely projects too.

The cable knitting technique was shown but not taught, By using a pre-made swatch you don't offer the ability to practice the technique that you only showed once before moving on to another technique. Not a class for beginners.

I would highly recommend this classic cables class for everyone. I have been knitting for quite some time now and have even done some cable work I learned many new tips and how to block without losing the cable effect. I now am creating my cable patterns for one of a kind pet apparel.

Your instructions are so easy to follow. Just finished the Maven Mitts. I didn't even have to read the pattern after I finished the first mitt. I would recommend this cable class to anyone who has never knitted cables.
Thank you so much! The blocking tips were new to me too. Great information!
