    I loved this class! Lovely, patient teacher who was really supportive. Amidst lots of laughter and tea I finally found how to hold those two yarns and make a pretty pattern. Thanks Kate and Suzanne!

    Fantastic class. Was amazed to find that I too could produce beautiful colour work and knit mittens without ever having done so before! This was definitely down to the teacher who was lovely to work with and even met me between sessions for a bit of help.
    I learnt loads of new techniques too such as magic loop,continental knitting and fair isle. Am wearing my gloves with pride.

    This was such a good class – we learned so much without it being heavy – it was great fun. I now have the confidence to work in the round, and do colourwork, and continental knitting. Suzanne is a very good teacher, and made the class a real pleasure.
