Knit in front and back video

Posted in knitting, video

Knitting into the front and the back of a stitch is one of the easiest ways to increase a stitch in your knitting. I have just finished a video showing you how to work the “knit in front and back” increase – abbreviated as kfb in knitting patterns. This is the method used to increase stitches in the Tangram square blanket design.

First video – How to thread a wool needle

Posted in video

I thought I would start with some very basic techniques so have produced a video showing how to thread a wool needle. Sewing up at the end of your knitting project is not the most enjoyable part of crafting.. This video shows you an easy way to get the needle threaded and get you started on finishing.
