This is such an excellent course! I have loved crocheting amigurumi for many years now, and I have been wanting to learn to knit an amigurumi too. I just started learning knitting 2 weeks before buying this course as a New Yesr's resolution, and making a doll seemed impossible. Yet Michele breaks down every step to seem so easy. I learned so many useful techniques, and because of this course, I am now able to follow knitting amigurumi patterns on my own. Thank you so very much, Michele!
