Wow! This class is beyond informative

I learned so many things about what I thought I already knew. This class was simply one of the best investments I've made in quite awhile. This detailed, easy to understand instructor has opened my eyes and took the hassle and fear out of blocking.

Great info

I'm looking forward to improving my blocking skills with the help of this class. I'm working on a cashmere shawl that will need to be locked when finished and this class should make that a breeze.

Well Presented

So far this is direct & easy to follow. It's about the subject matter not the presenter. It's a compelling argument I'll certainly be blocking my knits front now on. She's hooked me!

My lacy mohair shawl looks great because of this class

I have been knitting for the past 20 years, but have, for some reason, never knit or crochet with mohair...but our daughter is going to have her confirmation soon and she wanted a lacy mohair shawl...and as the shawl grew in size my fears of how to block it grew I took this class and with Kate's expert advise I no longer fear blocking a lacy mohair shawl.

The Class that Made Me Realize I was Going about Blocking All Wrong

One of the best Craftsy classes on the platform - and should be required for every knitter! Kate's class made me realize I was going about blocking the wrong way, particularly with smaller items like socks and gloves. I happened to finish some projects while taking the class, and put her instruction right into practice. What a difference! Highly recommended for new and veteran fiber artists.
