Cat Bordhi Vids on YouTube!!
OMG, I just got done watching most of Cat Bordhi's videos on YouTube and for those of you who have actually met her, is she that much of a riot in person?
I loved her videos and some of the things the related just almost had me in tears, I was laughing so hard!!!

Very informative but also very entertaining at the same time.

Thanks so much for posting. I just checked out one of her videos and it is awesome. I do a provisional cast on for my toe-up socks and the Judy Becker cast on that she shows rocks!

Hi Jan

:r ofl: - Cat Bordhi is a total hoot. I couldn't concentrate I was laughing so much.

I kept seeing Robin Williams in 'Good Mornin' Vietnam' - sitting drunk in a bar, playing with prawn heads on his finger tips Blonde needle - hello index finger - dark needle -talk to the thumb. Bottom to index - top to thumb

I'll never be able to do a long-tail cast on now, without thinking of that!

Ellie (the blonde one)

I'm with you, Jan. Sure, for example, Cat "improved" on the original magic cast-on because her style eliminates the need to knit into the back of the loops on the second needle. But, all I could think was, "I'm not in elementary school!"

The needles come in and chomp on the vine? The clock goes tick-tock? Come ON!

Just goes to show how different we all are. One person's "hoot" is another person's... Kinderarten teacher.

Interesting videos nonetheless.
