    I love the video tutorials but some of the instructions I cannot read easily due to colour choice eg. light blue on white or white on light colours.  I like the row instructions being in the screen instead of having to scroll down when the video is playing
    Also, at the top of the video screen where the row instructions are placed, they are partly under the black ‘how to knit’ line.
    I do not know if you received my last posting where I asked that the back of every batch be shown at the bottom, as this is for me educational in allowing me to decide if it is the correct one for the garment that I will use it in instead of having to make up a swatch then decide it is not the correct stitch for me to use in what I was going to knit.

       @MAnne I’ve changed the blue to be a little darker for future videos. The black bar will go away if you move your cursor off the video window.I did get your last comment. I usually only include a photo of the back of the swatch if I think it’s interesting. However you are not the only person to request this so I’m trying to remember to take photos of the back of the swatch too. I just posted the wrong side of this stitch. I can do this going forward, but it will be a while before I go back and reknit older stitches.

         @newstitchaday Thank you for your quick reply.
        I  thought you choosing not to show the back of the swatch was for that reason but it would still be a help, so thanks.

    Hi, just rec’d my first newsletter and just love it – all my knitting (I’m age 83) now is of the charitable type – shawls and aphgans for Hospice and hats/scarves for area Head Start (and similar groups) children – therefore I am always seeking out stitch patterns and  if this newsletter is typical of your norm, I am so delighted I found you – keep up the good work and I will do so, thanks to sites such as yours – Jacky D.
