“Even though I've spun dozens of singles yarns, I still learned a lot from this course. My favorite take-away was Jillian's attention to twist direction and knitting style. I'm looking forward to my next singles spin! ”
“I learned a lot. I am more of a spinner than a knitter and I really enjoyed the variety of results you can get in a single and learning ways to finish the yarn for more durability. The knitting examples really showed the advantages of using singles and considerations in selecting singles for knitting projects and even how your style of knitting will affect the outcome and how to adjust your spinning or knitting style to change this.”
“Excellent and constructive training detailing the way to embark on a singles spinning project from an easy and creative angle. Colour combinations meeting the right techniques to be able to knit with your singles, examples of different wool preps for different knitting samples, good tricks, well, lots of relevant information in just 42 minutes. It is concise, precise and enjoyable.”
