Testimonial: Advanced Self-Taught Knitter

I have taught myself to knit over the years with the exception of one course I took at my LYS. I consider myself knowledgeable and advanced, but am so happy to have found Liat. She is a phenomenal teacher and I have learned so much from her. I didn't know how much I didn't know and am so happy to learn so much from her courses.
