A class brimming with techniques!

This class is so worth the money! I've taken a similar in-person class with Sally at a knitting retreat. I loved it then, but felt a little overwhelmed because there was a lot to learn in a finite amount of time. I really like that I can take this class on an on-line platform where I can repeat techniques as many times as I want, and come back to the class whenever I want in the future.
Sally is a very talented knitter and designer, with a wealth of knowledge to share. She is also ...

Who knew? A must for every knitter....

Had no idea how useful this class would end up being! Learned so very much and yet I thought I knew enough about essential techniques.....Boy was I wrong....such wonderful camera angles showing off her techniques....wonderful, wonderful teacher.
Will be a daily go to for so many projects. Exciting.

So Far So Good!

I'm only at the beginning of the course, but am learning to appreciate the work needed ahead of actually making the fabric. I want the fabric to show the work I put in, so I am finally accepting the importance of the necessary preparations of gauge and swatching to get the perfect results I want. These are very clear and simple instructions! So far, so good.

Great class!

I have been knitting since I was 5 (I'm now 61), and I have enjoyed this class so much. Knitting has been a lifelong learning curve for me, and I certainly learned a lot from Sally Melville's class. I would recommend this class to any knitter. :O)

Clear, Concise and Succint

I enjoyed every minute of Sally's class. Her instructions were very clear. I enjoyed the fact that she explained options, stated her preferences, and gave reasons why. Her demonstrations made it easy to follow what she was saying. This class helped me to understand why patterns call for different types of increases and decreases. I was thrilled to get a better understanding of seaming and picking up stitches. Highly recommend this class for intermediate knitters.
