Though I haven't actually made anything yet since I bought this video ( about 2 weeks), I have been having fun practicing different things with different size needles and yarn, like gauges, and some actual stitch patterns, getting braver and braver. I think I might be ready to try a beginner or easy pattern to make an actual thing. If I make a mistake or drop a stitch ( worst case scenario) I know how to fix it.
If you're just starting out in knitting, and you hold your needles like chop sticks, and your "projects" end up as wads of knots, try this video! Knitting is not only a fun pastime, but also a practical one, and if you don't know how to do it and want to learn, this video can show you how.
Update 19 April 2017: You might not believe this but now I am a qualified spiffy knitter! I have made projects using cable stitches, entrelac, fair isle, lace stitches, and every other difficult level stitches I can find, and all because this dvd showed me that knitting is not the mysterious and difficult craft that I originally thought. ( thanks Nici !!). If there's anyone else out there ( besides me) who has seen beautifully knitted items and fantasized about being able to do it, thinking only nimble fingered rocket scientists could do it, please get this video. Knitting has proven to be the most pleasant pastime, and as an extra bonus, in addition to meeting many other really talented knitters in a knitters group, it also helped ( and continues to help) me quit smoking.
Now in Spanish: Me encanta este video y pienso que un niño de 10 años aprendería a tejer con dos agujas el mismo día que empieza a verlo. La instructora habla con claridad y tiene buena dicción, lo que facilitó el aprendizaje porque el inglés no es mi lengua materna.
