  1. When are you going to have an application for ipad/iphone with your techniques, tips and tutorials? It would be fabulous to have them on my ipad and an app that i would pay for!!

  2. Your videos are my favorites for learning knitting techniques. Your instruction is clear and I can always see exactly what you are doing. Thank you! Keep ’em coming!

  3. Thanks for a great tutorial. I have a question… Do you know how to do the modular knitting? There is a pattern on Ravelry I want to learn but not sure how to do it… It’s called Princess Squares. Hopefully you can show us that! Thanks a bunch for all the great stuff you do!

  4. Please help, I just purchased the knitting pattern on socks that comes with the videos and I can not download it anywhere. Do I have to wait for the pattern to come in the mail.

    Please help so I can get started on the socks,

  5. Denise – I hope you are checking the comments here, because I have no other way to reach you! I tried the email address you left with the comment above, and I tried the email address you used when you purchased the pattern. Neither of these email addresses is working correctly – all of my messages bounced back, which would explain why you didn’t receive your pattern. I really want to get your pattern to you, but I have no way of contacting you! Please get in touch with me again at staci@verypink.com.

  6. Thank you so much for this tutorial!

    I was going through Ravelry looking for a pretty knitted dishcloth and I found one that I liked and it had P2TOGTBL! The blog is French so maybe the PTBL is something French…

    I watch all of your videos and loved all of your tutorials!

  7. I enjoy your videos. I am trying to do the ptbl as you instruct, but I am doing something wrong. I am getting an extra stitch. Please advise.


  8. Hi Charlene – you must be pulling an extra loop through when you pull the wrap through. Really watch what you’re doing, to make sure that you’re only pulling the wrap through the “old” stitch, and that you’re not pulling part of the old stitch with the wrap.

    Hope that helps!

  9. Staci, you mention the clapotis shawl pattern in this video. I just started that pattern and have many questions! Will you consider doing a tutorial on knitting the clapotis?


  10. Laure – I’ve had dozens of requests for that tutorial, and I would love to do it. Unfortunately, the designer will not give me permission. She is concerned that I will infringe her copyright (which I would never do), so it is easier for her to turn down the opportunity.

    Sorry –
