Sure!

It's also different for ribbing. I'll put it up eventually, or when I get a request!

I taught myself to knit with this site ONLY!
I taught myself to knit with JUST this site.. I LOVE IT & have recommended it to friends. I taught myself (or learned from your videos, cast on, knit, purl, bind off) & proceeded to make my first 2 projects... 2 scarves.

I noticed my edges looked kinda crazy... but I attributed it to skill. After the second scarf also looked nutty.(even thought the stitching looked nice & neat) I searched your forum for tips on how to make my edges neater.

I found that I should have SLIPPED the first stitch in every row! Can't go back...but I think an ESSENTIAL TIPS section would be helpful.

I would suggest a tips section with the following:
- How to get neat scarf edges..slip stitch with a video.
- How to use circular needles...with a video on how to stop & start a new row. (I'd love to try a new pattern .. but I can't find anything on the web that shows me how to use those circular needles).
- changing colors video (even though the russian video shows the color change....it would be nice to see it knitted in or with 2 pieces of yarn. My weaving in of ends needs a LOT of work... I'm going to try that russian join on my next scarf.

THAT's about it for now... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! :D

Welcome Victorious & Ermaadkins!

Victorious, those are all great suggestions. I'll definitely do the slipped edge technique; I'll include it in the demo of how to knit a few rows on straight needles that I'll be doing. I'll probably do the video on joining colors that way too.

I do have a video on using circular needles. There's a few videos on knitting in the round. Hopefully they will address your questions.

Ermaadkins & Earthling, check out the videos on two-color knitting: fair isle and intarsia.

Re: knitting letters
ermaadkins you can also knit letters w/o using more than one color by using a pattern from just knits and purl stitches (the knits will be the flat "background" and the purls will be the raised letter part). Here's the chart I used, but I don't know what the copyright issues are... http://members.aol.com/Val2571214/graphedalphabet.html

on the right side, knit the white squares and purl the green squares, and on the wrong side purl the whites and knit the greens... Easy!
