Attended: Absolute Beginning Crochet

Attended: Absolute Beginner Knitting

I am truly an absolute beginner and didn't feel I received good advice when purchasing the required yarn and needles. The yarn kept splitting and the needles were too clunky for a beginner. And the instructor, while patient, could have provided a better introduction/overview before actually starting the actual knitting from the proper way to hold the needles to why the size of the needles matter.

Attended: Absolute Beginner Knitting

The person conducting the lesson was very good and patient with me. I liked her direction and friendliness. However, I assumed since it was called "a class" multiple beginners would be there when in actuality it was only me. This was good because I had complete attention and help but I was hoping to meet some other knitting beginners so I was a little disappointed. Overall I enjoyed my learning experience.

Attended: Spinning Appetizer with Lesia Tristram

Great class for an absolute beginner like myself.
