« Perfect! Maritta was a excellent tutor, both encouraging and very knowledgeable about knitting (I've had others with not nearly her level of expertise.) She also prepared for each of our meetings, finding a couple of mistakes in the pattern I had my heart set on. I can't wait for my next project and Maritta's troubleshooting! »

Perfect! Maritta was a excellent tutor, both encouraging and very knowledgeable about knitting (I've had others with not nearly her level of expertise.) She also prepared for each of our meetings, finding a couple of mistakes in the pattern I had my heart set on. I can't wait for my next project and Maritta's troubleshooting!
