See what some of them have to say.
I have to say that I am a fan of Vickie Howell and I absolutely love the way she teaches this class. The way she teaches this class is so easy to follow and understand. I am a beginner and was having a hard time with adding a new ball and decreases and this course has helped improve my knitting skills.
Very helpful class! Vickie Howell is engaging and easy to follow. Excited to be taking more of her classes :)
