Class at Needlecraft University

Today I'm finishing the sweater vest I made in my online course at Needlecraft University.
Check out the site, they have classes in crochet, knitting and ribbon embroidery. The crochet classes include classic crochet, Tunisian and Broomstick Lace; and there is great variety in the projects. The class I took was Lace Vest, but the important part of the class was not simply following a pattern & making the vest. This class taught how to take your measurements, work a gauge swatch, and then how to calculate how to make this fit. With the information learned, I can now use any sweater pattern I like and adjust the pattern to fit me.
I'll get pictures soon, I want to post one here and one in the classroom files at Needlecraft University.
What class shall I take next? :-)
