    Hi – another great episode! Congratulations on your spinning (I’m close to starting again thanks to your enthusiasm!). I loved the jokes : ). Quick question – did the knit to fit class build your confidence in knitting things that work? I’ve been eyeing that class but I really want to have my own skills not just be able to follow the pattern. I so hope I’m making sense!I’m "haveyarnwillfly" on ravelry or my e-mail is gjt.ranch@gmail.com if you get a moment. I also applaude your capturing each day & so wish I would have done that as my kids were growing.Blessings, Sandra

      Hi, Sandra! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I have to say the classes I have taken so far have made me feel very empowered as a crafter. The Knit to Flatter class especially was helpful in figuring out the math and how I want items to fit and I go back to it often when deciding what to do with my sweater knitting. I also like the way my seamed sweaters hang on my body a lot, and I will definitely be knitting more of them in the future. I hope that helps you! Blessings!
