Confident Yarn Consumer

This course was thorough and lessons were spaced in a timely manner. Learned from beginning to end of lessons. The instructor made course interesting and she is personable; I felt she was in my living room.

A 'must have' class for all knitters

So many exciting facts about yarn and how you can judge the qualities of the yarn by just looking at a skein and handling it. I enjoyed every single minute of it!
