"I loved this class!  I haven't touched knitting needles for over thirty years so before I took it I …was horrified that I would make a mistake.  I'm amazed at how far I have come. This class gave me the confidence to keep going with my knitting.  And the lovely key-hole scarf is a great way to start too.  Stephanie Japel is very funny and warm teacher and she makes you feel completely engaged in the lessons…this class is worth every penny you spend on it!"
