  • Thanks Vicki for teaching a great class. I consider myself to be an advanced knitter but I still learned some great tips and ideas from you. The cowl patterns look great and I plan to knit one soon.
  • This was an outstanding, intensive workshop by Vickie Howell. She covered a wide variety of techniques and I am amazed at how much I learned in just a few hours. I started practicing some of the new skills I learned and am happy to report that they are indeed now part of my knitting knowledge.
  • i was so excited about this class,, but she is short and i am shocked how fast she talks and the since of urgency..did you make her feel rushed? She is a little blunt... I loved her on the DIY she used to host. Not sure if I saw ego or a platform that put her in a bad light...I will save my money.. but I love Creative live and hope just the producers see this post.
