Some of the names are rather comical. I noticed this on one website. They offered yarn, needles, lessons, etc. and tried to make it sound like it was such a progressive website in order to get you to spend money. They presented a cast on called the E wrap. They made it sound like it was some new invention of theirs and cutting edge. This was the same tired old backward loop that's been around forever. What's the expression? You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. And what exactly is Vickie Howell trying to sell? I would trust Amy. The names she uses are the correct ones that are widely recognized by knitters all over the USA.
Welsh corgis are cool.
