Hello, I purchased this class a number of years ago. I started this class at least one time earlier. I can not begin to express how helpful this class has been. When I first started to knit, I had no idea of the many twist and turns there were in knitting. Patty Lyons has given me such a complete picture of circular knitting. I am wanting to do all things "circular" now. When I first started this class, 2018 I wrote Ms. Lyons and told her I did not think I could do it. Her reply was don't give up on something that you have not tried. I thank her for that and I am glad I gave it a try. Thanks, Ms Lyons for such an excellent job. Denver H.

I have used the lessons learned through this class for a few other projects. I'm preparing gauge swatches for two projects similar to His and Her Headbands and Slinky Hat. Both patterns are designed for straight needles then switching to circs. I'm going to try using only circs. The pattern calls for ribbing, stockinette stitch for the body and color changes. I'll submit a report on how successful I am.

Thank you Patty for this wonderful class. I, too, love working in the round. The bind-offs were very helpful and easy to understand with your wonderful teaching method.
