Loved this class😍

Harry was a phenomenal instructor. If you get a chance to take a class from him I highly recommend you do. I learned so much from this class. The absolute best class on mosaic knitting and colorwork I've ever taken.

Great class...

I do lots of colorwork--mostly fair isle. I was thrilled to learn this mosaic technique. The instruction was excellent (but then Harry Wells was a professor, so not so surprising). I didn't think there was anyway that I'd understand and be able to work a project in two hours when the class began. But, actually, we had extra time at the end for comments and questions. I've started a new project and am very excited about it. Thank you Harry.
