"I really loved this class. Miriam's easy-going approach and style keeps your attention and doesn't overwhelm you with information. For me, the shaping and figuring out how to make the transition to different patterns was something I just couldn't wrap my head around. It made so much sense and I 'got it' pretty much the first time around (though I recommend listening to it more than once!). Great class, I would highly recommend it to beginners and experienced knitters alike."
