- Well worth your time and dollars
- I was hooked by the promotion for this video showing Larson's sample notebook, but there are many other things to be learned from this lesson. It may seem simplistic, but seeing someone else explain their plying process clearly and with an true understanding of why they do what they do really clarified several things. Her explanations are clear and concise. Larson may speak to things you already know, but her demonstrations and explications add so much. I highly recommend this video, even to spinners who aren't that new to spinning. (Posted on 7/18/2016)
- Kate is an excellent teacher and she speaks about building strength in yarn from the fibre itself, right through to include different types of prep, different drafting techniques, plying methods and finally finishing, all the while keeping in mind what makes a great knitting yarn. I have watched this video three times, and each time I glean something different, but mostly I just enjoy seeing Kate (in her beautiful sweater) explaining and teaching. Highly recommend this video.
