It loaded before I got my yarn out!

I use Firefox (not IE8) and the platform runs smoothly and the improvements, like 30 sec replay and easy pic upload in Q&A, work effortlessly.

Ms Feller is an inspiring and proficient knitting instructor.

Her subtle use of humor is a real treat.

Short rows are much easier with her showing the way.

I already want to remake several t-tops patterns to replace bind offs and seams with short rows and three way bind offs. They look so professional and are easier than you think!

thank you Carol Feller!

I haven't been able to get the video to play at all.  It just continues to say it is loading but it never finishes and begins to play.  I am very disappointed, I really wanted to learn more about short rows.  I did download the instrucftions but I'm sure that doesn't show me nearly as much as the videos would. Any suggestions?

Poor loading of video made this a bad experience for me.  I wish there was a way that the whole video could be downloaded to our computers so we can watch without interruptions.  After this experience there is no way I would pay for any courses on here.

Are you familiar with The Beard pattern on Craftsy?  I knit for homeless and at risk teens and several have asked me to make this for them.  I am at a  loss as to how to do a wrap and turn at the end of a row, and also accomplish a decrease at the same time.  Can you help?
