    A fantastic follow up to How to Knit for Beginners using the basic skills learned and moving on to more challenging projects. Nicki is there every step of the way demonstrating, explaining and making sure that you don’t feel an absolute idiot when faced with new techniques! I was thrilled with the new skills I learned and am eagerly looking forward to the next course. Meanwhile I will be tackling some projects on my own that I wouldn’t have felt confident to try before this course. Thank you Nicki!
