Oh thank you!!!
Thank you for the videos!!! I was lost, ok for starters here I am brand new. Never knitted a thing in my life. I was able to get the CO pretty easily but then came the knit stitch... that totally derailed me. Of course I think it was the book I was going off of. Poorly detailed and very few pictures.
I watched the english version video and after watching it a few times I was good to go! And the rhyme actually helped too!!

Now once I knock that out of the park and I dont have to think so hard on it, on to purl I will go... And yes I will be watching the video for that as well!!!

So thank you, for us beginners its soo nice to sit and watch someone in front of you step by step help you out.

Thank you!

Aren't they wonderful? I'm so glad Amy and Sheldon put this site together, it really helped me, too.

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.

I love it; I had only been taugh the basics, cast on, knit, and purl. Once I started reading patterns and saw all the differnt stitches I had to do, I started my search on how to's. I'm glad I found this site, the videos help tremendously.

Me too!
It's amazing how much I have learned just by sitting here in front of my computer taking in all the video classes... not to mention Silver's Sock class...
It's all quite amazing!

I am adding my kudos! I am learning to knit continental using the videos! I knit English or as my friends say I throw my stitches.
I will never stop learning or sharing my knowledge!
