This class erased my my fear of lace!

I took this class hoping to learn to read and understand my lace knitting, so I could get past that awful frustration and non stop cursing and frogging. I had no problem taking on cables and color work, but lace was my white whale! It made me feel stupid and I have a corner of shame in my yarn closet with a half dozen failed efforts.

Laura is energetic, inspired and presents her art with precision and love. Her enthusiasm is infectious. At this point I am listening through the lessons, I have gathered yarn, but I still need more information in my file cabinet brain before I get started. Love this avenue to learn/absorb before doing. Thank you for your many clear step by step instructions and almost perfect camera angles. ;-)

Having A blast!

I am really enjoying this class so far! Laura is a really clear, organized teacher who also clearly has a love for what she is teaching. The class on how to make certain stitches was very helpful. I have never done a "make one", and had never had instruction on the correct way to slip stitches. This is going to be fun!
