What everyone else said

Patty Lyons is a fabulous teacher. I especially appreciate the fact that she doesn't talk down to us or try to be cute. She imparts her considerable understanding of knitting processes in an informative and entertaining way. i, too, would award many more than 5 stars.

Very informative class!

Learning & understanding the different styles of knitting was very interesting and will be quite useful.

I'm a Western knitter & found that learning the Continental method will be quite handy in Fair Isle knitting

All these different styles or methods of knitting allow us to refine our knitting techniques and allow us to decide which method to use depending on the project type.

Patty is truly an excellent teacher and enjoyable to watch. Thank you Patty!

I was taught continental knitting when I was about 12. 30 years later I still struggled to keep my stitches even and knitting gave me more frustration than anything else.

Great Way To Try Out New Skills

I wanted to improve my knitting speed and technique but wasn't exactly sure where to start. This class exposed me to several new techniques and helped me start to learn Continental Knitting. The instructor is very clear and concise and offers lots of great tips and tricks for each style that she demonstrates. She is very easy to listen to and watch.
