A Virtual Class with Kristin Drysdale

In her years of teaching, Kristin has found that two-handed is the fastest, easiest way to learn and fall in love with two-color knitting. Remember, you are already half-way there!

Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.

This was one of the best Stitches classes I have taken. Kristin is a wonderful instructor, enthusiastic and patient. I'm pretty confident I can now knit with my left hand! I was able to finish the class project incorporating the skills Kristin taught us without my yarns tangling....just as she promised!!

Wonderful Class

I really enjoyed this class. I wanted to learn to knit with my left hand and do color work with yarn in each hand. I did it! Kristin was a very encouraging teacher and so enthusiastic that it was contagious. Her Nordic Primer book has beautiful patterns and step-by- step instructions with pictures. Looking forward to my next class with Kristin.
