I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do for this. My first idea was to take pictures of all my current projects, or all of my finished items. I could have snapped all the pre-blog and pre-website items. Instead, I went down the video route.
I knit what is called “Combination” or “Eastern Uncrossed”. Before I learnt this technique I knit with the yarn in my right hand in a style commonly called “English” or “American”. I used to hate purling. It would take me about twice as long to purl a row as to knit one.
As you will see from the videos, this is no longer a problem!
The movies are 30 seconds long and in MOV format (and AVI format) and this can be played in Quick Time, although most systems will already have this installed. There is no sound – just me in a very bright pink top and some yarn!

Sorry – not very dial-up friendly!
The smaller ones aren’t working – but I am! I’ll keep trying on making them more accessable. Just stay with me!
Oooookay! My wunderkind brother has done it! You may need some sort of magic jiggery-pokery thing found here if the videos don’t play.
