Here are some other benefits to taking a class at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio:
The teacher and instruction was awesome...
I took all three Lion Brand knitting courses, great way to get started as a new knitter!! Instructor is very helpful and gives you great tips not in the handout along the way. Would recommend taking all 3 courses
The class was good but I did have a little trouble catching on. The instructor was knowledgeable but at times it was difficult understanding her accent.
Great class for really, really true beginners. If you already know how to cast on and knit you won't get much more out of this class for your money. The teacher's time is mostly spent with those who are really struggling and learning how to just hold the needles, etc. That being said, I did pick up some good materials and got to ask a few lingering questions that my youtube videos and knitting how-to book couldn't really give me! and really great to see stuff demonstrated in person - knitting images just aren't that helpful, since it's all about small hand motions, etc.
The instructor was very clear, informative and nice. The class could have been paced a bit better so we spent less time on the preliminary steps and more time on making progress on the project.
This was exactly what I was looking for, a no pressure hands-on class. I came away with a basic understanding of knitting and am so excited to start my first project. Can't wait to take the next level class!
It was a fun pattern to learn.
Very energetic and helpful teacher and very patient too. The socks were very fun and rewarding to make.
The class was really small so you're able to get a lot of good individual attention. The instructer was so patient and helpful, I can't wait to take the next class!
I walked out able to knit a project and all my questions where answered - that's 5 stars for me!
