Have I gone off the deep end?
I just made a knitting video to help my BFF learn how to pick up sts and then kfb. While I was setting up the camera and tripod, my husband said, "You've gone off the deep end..." I think not!!! I am just trying to spread the love...This past Aug I taught her how to knit while I was visiting her in Houston. She found the pattern for the Latifa Scarf on Knitty.com and we are doing a KAL. She said she couldn't figure out how to pick the sts for the ruffle so I did what any BFF would do I showed her how.

I remember when I was trying to figure out how to pick up sts while knitting my 1st log cabin. I just couldn't figure it out, even with the awesome vids here at KH. I finally did get it thanks to everyone's pictures posted, but it took a bit.


So no, I haven't gone off the deep end!!! Right?

No Way!!! Who better then you to know how your friend thinks and learns, and how to show her the best way she will 'get it.'

Good for you! So nice to have the modern equipment that allows a person to do something like this for a friend. In the old days you would have been out of luck. This is not "off the deep end", this is using your resources.

If you are off the deep end, you have lots of company, and off the deep end is the place to be.

Good for you! I'm glad you have this to share with BFF. Enjoy!
