    Knitting Styles Class

    I enjoyed this class so much and all of the finger exercises really have helped! The lesson on tension was probably the most helpful of all because I have tried continental knitting a couple times before and gave up because of tension problems. After completing the project scarf I now feel confident to switch completely to continental knitting! Thanks so much!

    Very helpful!

    I had no idea there were so many options for casting on and binding off; great demos!
    It may be worth re-ordering the cast-on portion as the basic cast-ons (long tail, backward loop) are halfway through the cast-on section. Perhaps it would be worth putting those first.
    I would love a cheat-sheet summarizing both cast-ons and bind-offs and which techniques are best for different types of edges/projects.
    Thanks!
