  1. Your tutorials are the BEST!!! I don’t really do well with video instructions – prefer still photos, and yours are excellent. I also like that I can easily copy them to a Word Document. For quick reference, I created a folder for “Knitting Techniques” with sub-folders (“Bind-Offs” for this one).

    Thanks so much for helping me become a better knitter. I guess you CAN teach an “old lady” who has knitted for 40-plus years new tricks.

    Thanks again!!!
