"WOW! This class is great. I have been knitting for a while and I get asked questions on how to do things all the time. Now I am going to tell everyone that this class takes you step by step. You go from the basic (casting on DPN), then move on to reading charts, doing cables, how to do Fair Isle and so much more. Best of all, you knit a new mitten or glove for each new technique. This should be a class that everyone takes. I learned something too. Great teacher."
