Thank you for making a knitting class for amigurumi. I liked how each piece was knitted flat, forcing me to work on my seaming! I also learned how to embroider, as that isn't something I ever did before. Wonderful instructions and I really liked how much detail was given for every step.

I don't know if the instructor noticed that the instructions for Row 23 and 25 says K1, K2tog 6 times instead of "all the way across" in Billy Bunny.

I have found this class excellent. The instructions are easy to follow and so much detail.
The colours used show off the little animals very well.
I would recommend this class to anyone who has ever attempted to knit amigurumi.
The animals knit up quickly with great results.
