  1. Thanks for another good lesson. Though I’m not a new knitter, I still enjoy the refresher courses in basic techniques. Being a one-project-at-a-time knitter, it’s easy to go a long time without using a technique, and your videos keep me reminded of skills and thinking of projects I might like to do next.

  2. Thank you for the video. I learned SO much from this project. Now that it’s finished, do you have any suggestions on how to block it? I’m stumped.
