I know I mentioned on here that I signed up for Patty Lyons' "Improve Your Knitting" course on Craftsy, but I think I failed to mention how utterly fabulous it is! I took it because I wanted to learn how to knit continental style, but I learned so much more than that! I really think it has helped vastly improve my knitting. I bring this up today because there is a discussion in the Craftsy Ravelry group about how awesome Patty's classes are and I just discovered that she has an online class through Knitting Daily called "The Secrets of Yarn Substitution". I'm really interested in this course because I sub yarn all the time and, I must admit, sometimes I regret it! I would love to know some tips and tricks on how to improve my subbing success. I've never taken a web class from Knitting Daily before and I doubt it could possibly be as good as the Craftsy platform, but I might just give it a try.
In related news, the Craftsy Ravelry group has a running wishlist of classes we'd love to see on Craftsy and someone recently suggested a History of Knitting class. Wouldn't that rock? I'd take it in a heartbeat! I know there are some good books out there on the subject, but I'd love to listen to a great lecture on the subject instead. Maybe I should learn something about knitting history and pitch the class myself?? I'd finally put my history degree to use. That would be strange indeed.
