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.

Excellent class, I love the tutor. The instructions are clear, easy to follow.
I particularly like the fact that she's included instructions for continental knitters.
Also being such a short video the content list is quite detailed and it's easy to go back to the right spot (which is a big problem with long video).

Love the class knew most of the content, glad to know which I can use as an alternative cast on or bind off. I think my directional scarfs will look much better with the three needle bind off than the Kitchener which I am not very good at.
Thanks for a lovely class.

Excellent teacher. No waste of time, straight to the point and well demonstrated. As a beginner I appreciated the clear way this teacher explains and demonstrates... She gave me the right way before I perfected bad habits. She makes it easy to understand and precisely execute. Now I know the how, why and when to use each technique. I'm delighted with this class and highly recommend it.
