Some months back Tove and I did a theme week with our best tips for where to find supplies, patterns, you name it. Doing our investigation we discovered things that were new to us too. Some new things just had to cook for a while. Suddenly I got a newsletter from Craftsy about their video classes and especially one about how to design your own lace shawls. (I don’t read newsletter too often. You know, just scrambling through before deleting them.) This time however I stopped eying it through carefully.
Craftsy is a learning platform with video based courses in not only knitting, but anything handcrafted. I’m looking at the knitting and yarn related courses (no surprise there I think).
There’s mini couses which are free and there are more extensive courses that you pay for. (Naturally I’ve signed up for Miriam Felton’s class Lace Shawl Design. Being a bit of a language geek (sometimes) I’ve also signed up for Edie Eckman’s How to Say It: Pattern Writing for Knitters.
You can find Craftsy online, but also easily accessed via their mobile app. (I’m especially fond of easy access and being able to view the courses on my mobile, on my apple tv or the computer just gives me all the options I need).0
