I just made a video on You Tube that explains "back and forth" knitting with circular needles.

Some people misunderstand this concept, and think they are knitting in the round whenever they use circular needles.

I'm no expert, and I was sick while making this video. But, I did want to help make it clear to new knitters what the two types of circular knitting represent.

I liked your video! I've been thinking about making one too, but I always decide against it.

I also took a peek at your video of the snow in Charlotte! Getting snow doesn't happen very often here in NC, but boy is it exciting when it finally snows! :teehee:

Thanks, Shandeh! I went over there and posted a little hello. There are lots of NC knitters, I didn't even know!

Hi Shandeh

Thanks so much for making that video - really useful in clearing up confusion between knitting in the round and back and forth.

I'm sorry you've got a cold but the accent still came shining through - why is it that people from the south have such easy-going, laid-back accents? Could listen to you all day!

Thanks again and hope your cold hops it fast.

All the Best

Limey

Hi there!! We have accents that represent our way of life. We are an easy-going, laid-back kind of people. :)

But, as for ME, I prefer to listen to British accents! :hug:
