Video - Straight Knitting with Circular Needles
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!
