What are you most proud of? Both scarf projects were excellent projects for learning the brioche stitch and mastering the increases and decreases that were part of the scarves' designs. I am also pleased to learn the Italian cast-on and the bind-off and look forward to employing them in other projects.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great class for tackling some challenging knitting. Nancy is a terrific instructor - very clear, thorough, and a sly sense of humor. I studied the projects that were posted in helping me choose what color yarns I wanted to use. I highly recommend this class, but would note it is not a class for a new or beginner knitter.
