"I had tried to learn short rows before and failed miserably. By knitting along with Carol, using the printed materials and replaying parts of the lesson several times, I have finally got it. Can't wait to use it in my knitting. Carol is a fantastic teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed her class. Can't believe it was a free one!"
