I thoroughly enjoyed learning to knit. The teacher was very patient with me, as I didn't always grasp things first time. She was happy to go over stitches with me as many times as was required. I didn't feel silly to ask basic questions. All in all, I would heartily recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn knitting. I will come back again for more classes. Bev x

I used to knit when I was at school but I had forgotten everything. So this course was perfect for me as I could go right back to basics. I quickly remembered why I used to enjoy knitting so much. It's really relaxing and I have found myself knitting in front of the TV and on the train. I really love it! Knithub 24 is a great school - it's in a good location and the teachers are really nice. I will practice my new skills a bit more and then go back for the intermediate level. If you're thinking about learning to knit, just go for it!
