I really enjoyed your class, and I learned a lot. I especially had trouble with coordinating the long time cast on with my fingers and hand, but I think I got it now. Using the thumb was also good for me. Thanks very much your teaching and demonstrations were very clear and easy to understand.

It is very easy to follow. I didn't have any problems. Most of this I already know how to do.

I am thoroughly enjoying the class and am amazed at the number of methods of casting on and casting off. I am a self taught knitter from many, many years ago and am only now getting into the knitty gritty of all the different ways of knitting. This was and will be (because I keep referring back to the video) very helpful for me when knitting different articles to make the correct choice on how to cast on and cast off. I am present making slippers and found the correct cast on technique to make the slippers looser around the ankle. Thank you again for helping me discover so many cast on and cast off methods and with such patience. This tutor was excellent.

I love the class but I am a little slow so I have a hard time seeing what to do to make the first stitch after the slip knot but that is my fault not the class.
