This was my first time trying any sort of knitting and cannot recommend it enough! Beautiful colour and yarn and the instructions are really clear and simple. So happy with my first ever knitted blanket and now just want to make more!
I am not a knitter so was a bit concerned I wouldn't be able to do the arm knitting - but Sophie's videos were so easy to follow, and I am delighted with my chunky blanket. Hoping to purchase more wool to make another one now!
Response from Forest and Dot:Thank you Esther for a lovely review!
Great introduction to arm knitting! Sophie’s video instructions were clear and easy to follow, beautiful selection of coloured yarns too! I would definitely recommend Sophie’s kit if you want to give arm knitting a try
Response from Forest and Dot:Thanks you for such a lovely review, much appreciated!
What a great course! Sophie is very reassuring - I can't knit and was concerned that I would find this too difficult online. It turns out that with clear instructions I can knit and have managed to make a beautiful blanket- I love it so much I want to make another!
Thank you Sophie, prompt communication, clear instructions and a beautiful cosy blanket at the end, I thoroughly recommend this course.
Response from Forest and Dot:Thank you for such a lovely review, much appreciated!
This is a brilliant class! Sophie is a lovely patient teacher and I made the most beautiful throw.
I'm recommending this to my friends!
Response from Forest and Dot:Thank you so much Alice for a lovely review!
I’ve actually stopped opening my calendar after getting a tea bag in an envelope. As the calendar cost £75 I was expecting something way better. Very disappointed.
Response from Forest and Dot:I’m soo sorry you are disappointed with your calendar. The calendar is made by two small businesses souly by hand. A lot of time was spent producing the whole calendar from start to finish and everything was made by just two people. It’s not mass produced and made by hand. The calendar was listed and described accurately.
The kit arrived in good time and was beautifully packaged, and all the components were lovely. The videos provided were very clear and not too quick, so I got the hang of it very quickly! And the resulting wreath looks lovely!
Such a great course - I definitely recommend! Sophie's instructions were so easy to follow and I'm so happy with the blanket I made! I was a bit hesitant at first as I've never tried my hand at arm knitting and wasn't sure how easy it would be to pick up "online" but Sophie's videos were so intuitive & easy to grasp!
Response from Forest and Dot:Thank you for your lovely review Maria!
What a great night on board a beautiful canal boat learning how to make a fantastic festive wreath! Sophie explained the process and then allowed us to crack on with our own designs, offering guidance where needed. I would definitely do another of her workshops!
Response from Forest and Dot:Thank you Sammy much appreciated! It was great to have you onboard!
What an amazing time... a warm September evening spent with the wonderful Sophie on her boat. We’d booked a private workshop to learn how to arm knit a chunky throw. Sophie is incredibly patient and none of us could believe we’d arm knitted our gorgeous throws in just under 2 hours! We’ve learnt a skill for life (just ordered yarn to make another!). Thank you Sophie... we had the best time ever.
I had a lovely afternoon in a super location, which made it feel very special as the course was a present.
Sophie helped everyone, from beginners to others who were more experienced.
I hope to come back for another course in the future.
Brilliant course with Sophie. Enjoyed every minute of it and she was very patient with us. What a lovely way to spend a Friday morning! Definitely recommend. Thanks Sophie
Great workshop in a really lovely and unusual location! The group was small, which was perfect as it meant everyone was able to go at their own pace and Sophie, the tutor, was able to spend lots of time with everyone individually, to make sure they knew what they were doing. Really enjoyable, would definitely recommend.
I absolutely loved this class. We had a great time chatting and crafting and I came away with a beautiful knitted throw.
Her instructions were super easy to follow and the throw was so enjoyable to make.
Great atmosphere, great people, great evening!
I came to this course with a friend as it was a really good evening. I love the blanket I made and Sophie was very good at teaching me as I had never knitted before. I love the boat it is so cute and cozy and I would love to do another course with Sophie again <3
Response from Forest and Dot:Thank you Elodie for a lovely review!
Such a fun evening. Total relaxation on board while producing a gorgeous blanket that makes you want to snuggle! Sophie is a great teacher and arm knitting is easy to pick up.
I attended this course with a friend last week. It was a very relaxing evening in a beautiful setting. We had a lovely evening chatting and knitting, and under Sophie's guidance we both left with a wonderful completed throw. Highly recommended! I'd never done any knitting before and had no problems :)
Attended this course earlier this year....was a lovely evening and I left with a gorgeous knitted throw thanks to the guidance of Sophie. I can highly recommend, even if you are a knitting novice like me!
Response from Forest and Dot:Thank you Claire for your lovely review! It was great to have you onboard! I hope you enjoy your arm knitted throw!
