I love this pattern. I made it in a solid worsted weight and also with a solid chunky. Both are beautiful! Thank you! Amazing teacher!

I loved this class with Lena! She explains things SO well and my finished afghan is beautiful! I have gotten so many compliments on it. I am now working on a second one for a friend! Thank you, Lena, for sharing your amazing talent!

She is phenomenal! I learned so much from her and would have never been able to do this blanket without her Eli! Thank you so much! Would you be able to offer a class to do the Old World Fisherman blanket? I can't figure out how to do it and it's so beautiful and you were so helpful with the Gansey Blanket.

I'm on my second repeat of this wonderful pattern. I love the option of emailing the instructor if needed. I have found that counting stitches for each row and CAREFULLY reading the instructions saves many headaches. While my blanket is done in four colors at the recipient's request, I'm eager to do a second Gangsey style blanket in a solid color. Wonderful design and well-written pattern! Videos are great too! Excellent instructions, Lena~
