Our entrelac video is in the works, and it should be up in early January!
I asked for that last winter, and had already purchased the yarn I wanted to use. I found two different methods on the internet, and used them instead. One is using a long colorway that makes different color diamond shapes. The other used a different color on each pass across the scarf or whatever... like diamond stripes.
Me too... LOVE the look, completely intimidated by the technique!
I would love to see a how-to sock video!!!
This one is in the works - we're trying to break it up into multiple videos, just so it doesn't get too long or too complicated.
When I learned to knit socks, I couldn't find a video, but I found one site that had pictures with each step of the sock, and close up step by step instructions for critical things, like picking up stitches, the gusset, etc. Once you understand each part of the sock, it just kind of flows. I think that is very important in designing and editing a video on socks. For a beginner, just looking at a sock and realizing you will try to knit one is overwhelming. Broken down into it's parts, the whole thing is brought back into perspective.
Also, Lucy Neatby and Nenah Galati have released sock videos that we sell here: http://www.knitpicks.com/reference+knitting+DVD_BL300409.html
You seem to have more videos on YouTube than actually on your own site. I would love to see the steeking episode on the sleeves. The others were great but not really sure about the order to watch them. When I found them they were great. Disappointed with the speed knitting videos. One was called Learn to speed knit but was really tips and I would have love to have seen the speed knitting interview from over their shoulder so we could have benefited. So that's what I would like to see - details of how to speed knit and also the steeking sleeves video. Thanks. Nigel
Today I listened to the "I-cord Magic" podcast, and it was really hard for me to visualize what Kelly was talking about when she was discussing putting I-cords on the edges of scarves, on steeked shoulders, or when binding off lace. Could someone please do a tutorial on one of these? I think I-cord edges on scarves might be the most useful as they seem like the most basic. Thanks so much!
Absolutely! Kelley actually video blogged a lesson on applying an I-cord edging to a baby blanket - you can see that blog post right here: http://community.knitpicks.com/profiles/blogs/1984936:BlogPost:26845
Don't know if there is such an item but is there a knitting video that would give you step by step instructions on a - say - a sock pattern. By knitting and watching this video you could see what your actually making - walla - a sock!
Just thought it might be a nice idea for someone who doesn't leave their home or just want to make something at their own leisure.
