This class is fun and fab

I am so pleased with the results I got when knitting this beautiful sweater. Ragga is a great, friendly instructor who makes this seem doable--and therefore it is! I didn't have many questions after paying close attention to the tutorials. They're pretty simple and straightforward, and her attitude just gives you that "can do" feeling. My sweater is beautiful. I ripped back a few times, but it was almost always because I hadn't paid close enough attention to the video, which shouldn't ...

Learning New Things

I'm so anxious to continue and actually begin to knit. I have been knitting nearly 60 years but always open to new things. I love the approach of Ragga giving the history and background of this Iceland craft. My granddaughter was recently in Iceland on a trip from USA. This would make a great Christmas gift for her. Each time I have tuned in to a lesson I have been happy with the warmth of the teacher and her calm approach. Thank you so much.

Wow!! Can't Wait To Knit This Sweater!!

Like reading the pattern before you start to move it, I like to watch the entire video before I start the project. Ragga is a great teacher making everything seem simple. I love her continental purl as well as the instruction for holding three colors. Can't wait to watch the rest of the classes!

Nice Intro

I am enjoying the class so far. Love Iceland- have been there two times and always wanted to go to the next level with my knitting to knit a sweater. Have knitted socks, shawls, baby clothes but never (yet) an actual sweater - excited to make my first sweater as an Icelandic Sweater. Very relaxing style of teaching, informative, interesting. Looking forward to the next step!

Can't Wait To Buy Lopi Yarn Locally

I am particularly enjoying Ragga's class as I am about to go to Iceland on holiday and I look forward to purchasing my yarn locally; photographing the sheep and experiencing nature.
