    I love the fact I can knit along with you – LOL!! you can even anticipate my dropping the stitch by saying be careful not to drop the stitch….my mom would have yanked it away from me…am so glad you can’t reach through the screen and do same!  Thank you so much for your beautiful patterns – your voice is so calm it is a pleasure to knit along with you!

    Could you add “purlwise” in the pattern?  You state purlwise in the video but not in the written pattern which could make a difference in the design.  Thanks.

    I really appreciate these videos.  They’re so easy to follow along with and give excellent instructions on how to do the stitches.  I’m fairly new to knitting so this helps me a lot.  I love the fact that I can make up my own patterns now with these stitches and won’t have to spend hours online looking for a pattern.
