Love this class! Kate Atherley is a fantastic teacher! She teaches clearly, slowly and very easy to understand! I do not know how to knit, and after taking this class, I know how to catch on, stitch, purl stitch, seed stitch, increase and decrease, and bind off. She is very helpful!

I did a little knitting years and years ago but never progressed very far. When I saw this class I thought I'd give it another try and am glad I did. The video, and especially the 30, 60, 90 second repeat feature, is a great learning tool. I am very happy with the class and the instructor and will look for more classes in the near future.

Kate Atherley is a fantastic teacher. Over the years I've bought how to knit books galore and could never make heads or tails of them. I had to make a kind of complicated fox cowl for a friend's granddaughter for Christmas and because of this class the project came out practically perfect. It looked as if a pro made it instead of a novice. Whenever I had a question for Kate I received an answer the very next morning. This class made doing this project fun instead of scary. I've been into crochet for 26 years, and now because of this class I can love the craft of knitting. Very grateful to Kate and Annie's for this new skill I have.

I was picking up knitting after many years and wanted to do it right. Kate was clear and precise and taught the basics beautifully. I loved the projects and did each one. Loved her patterns and yarn selections. She also answered questions quickly and warmly. I didn't really expect much from the projects but they were all a pleasure to knit and finish with her good instructions. The Lil Jester Hat, wool scarf and the shawl (major pleasure to knit) are all in active use. I would take any class Kate offers and I highly recommend this to any beginner or anyone wanting a refresher.

What a great class! I have wanted to learn to knit for years. With this class I was knitting within minutes of watching it. The instructor makes each step very clear. The ability to watch each stitch over again and again until you get it is very helpful. I recommend this class to everyone.
