I have been threatening for years to put a number of videos together showing how to do the various knitting techniques for our patterns. But I must admit, I have been dragging my feet. It could be because in my “other life” I WAS a video producer and know how much time and effort goes into producing a really good video. Frankly, I just don’t have that kind of time at this stage of my life. With running a business, a household and having to make dinner every night, there just aren’t enough hours in the day.
Still, I felt video tutorials were really something I needed on our site. A week doesn’t go by when I don’t find myself giving “virtual lessons” to customers – the one row buttonhole in our iMitt pattern being the most popular. Enter my KNIghT in shining armor – Johnny Vasquez of New Stitch a Day! Johnny has put together an amazing site full of knitting & crocheting videos that are all “community share” – meaning I can post them on my site! Brilliant and SO generous! Now, if you have a question on how to do that one row buttonhole, the link is on my sight to one of Johnny’s videos to show you how to do it. I’ve also put up a link on the homepage of our website (www.knitouttathebox.com) to all of Johnny’s knitting technique videos. Can’t quite figure out how to do a 3 needle bind off? It’s there. Confused if you should use a ssk or k2tog decrease? He shows you the difference between the two and the best application for each.
I strongly suggest you sign up for his daily stitch a day video. This guy’s a genius. I learn something new from him everyday (literally)!
