Exactly!

I love your sample, Jan! I've seen it before, and think it's wonderful.

I made the video, because a new member in the "Welcome" thread asked about the statement "knit the knits and purl the purls". I tried to find a video online that explained it, but was unsuccessful, so I decided to make one myself.
