Please enjoy this “classic” episode from January, with a new intro we recorded explaining why we’re running a classic episode. (Spoiler, very rough weather in Texas has made it impossible to get together to record!)

You can see Casey’s website and her social media buttons on kcknits.com.

Dr. Steven Reinlie from Next Level Chiropractic is from Round Rock, TX and went on to study and play baseball at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. He is passionate about working with sports athletes to help keep them healthy and on the field of play. Dr. Reinlie recommends this video: Posture Reset.

Norwegian Purling

Norwegian purling is a way to keep the working yarn in back while you’re purling Continental (holding the working yarn in your left hand).

Early on in the video, I say “working yarn in your right hand” – I misspoke. You’ll see in the video that Continental knitters hold the working yarn in their left. 🙂

The yarn I use for demonstration is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky.

The needles I’m using are Knitter’s Pride Bamboo Double Pointed Needles. (No real need to use DPNs for this technique, I’m just using them here because they’re short and they work well on camera.)

My nail polish is by Julep, color “Channon”.
