I have not had the opportunity to actually do a project yet, but I did watch. I did not realize how much I was missing until I watched this class. I have been knitting for 60 years and I stuck to my old ways and just thought if I could read a pattern that's all I needed to do. I love Lily Chin. She is very easy to follow and understand, as well as holding the work so I can see what she is doing. She helps me to understand the 'whys' and structure reasoning that are so important in creating a knit piece. This class did inspire me to buy more patterns that I will use short rows with. As soon as I am finished with the projects I am doing now, I am going to use this class a LOT!

Absolutely fantastic! Thanks to Lily for another rewarding and comprehensible class. I was gifted with one of her live classes. She's a fabulous instructor. I actually get it! Thanks, Lily.

One of the best short row classes one can take. Lily explains things clearly and thoroughly. She also provides you with invaluable tips and tricks along the way. An outstanding class! Highly recommended.

Lily Chin is an outstanding instructor. She does not rush and explains everything in great detail. Her hands never hide what she is doing and she does not use dark yarn so you are able to see exactly what she is explaining. She also provides tips & tricks. The patterns for the projects are included in the class materials, which is fantastic, I had a couple of other video classes that you had to purchase the patterns separately.
