Not enough detail, went over important points much too quickly, an extra example of the math would’ve been helpful. If you’ve been knitting for awhile, it’ll probably make more sense, but if you’ve been knitting for awhile, you wouldn’t need this class. This is a theme with Creativebug classes, imo. Not enough detail, teaching goes too fast. I learn more from YouTube classes than most of these!
