Testimonial: Very Well Presented

Very well presented video about Brioche knitting. Good job and thanks for teaching.
  – Nancy Marchant, author of Knitting Brioche

Testimonial: OUT-STANDING! !

I love, Love, LOVE your Brioche course. I feel like it has already paid for itself with just the little tips alone that you have passed along so far. Not once have I had a problem seeing or understanding what you were doing or explaining. And it began in such an understandable and methodical way. Everything keeps building on what was previously covered… And the videos are OUT-STANDING! !

Testimonial: Worth Its Weight in Gold

This Brioche Knitting eBook is worth its weight in gold (okay, being an ebook, it doesn't actually weigh anything, so I guess you could say the book is priceless).

Everything you need to work a basic brioche project is covered, from cast-on to weaving in ends on a finished project. The videos are clear and well-done, and the written instructions are easy to follow and concise. (If you've seen any of Liat's other ebooks, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, you're in for a treat.)
  – Brian M., Salt Lake City

Testimonial: Tremendously Helpful, Covers Everything

Your Brioche Knitting Course… covers all the things I need to know about knitting the Brioche Stitch. The course is well thought out and the layout progressive. The videos are tremendously helpful as well as the written instructions. There is nothing I would add or change in the course.
