I want to say that I really appreciate you showing with such ease how to make cables. 

My oh my how ease you make it seem and when I tried it, it was really as easy as you showed it.


Thanks a million I have never seen any body teach (virtually making it so easy for the learner) the way you do.


God Bless and keep on teaching us.

Thank you,  I thought it would be more complicated.  You made it look so easy.  Will see, I am on my way out to purchase a cable mill.

I just love watching knitting daily on pbs. it has inspired me to pick up knitting again and realize that i can do it for real. the cabling is my favorite of all things to learn to do which I never believed I could do. Watching you do it on knitting daily looked so easy that I sat down and actually did it. I could never follow instructions well, but I'm finding now that it's not nearly as confusing or intimidating  as i once believed it to be. Thank you so much for your show.  I love it!!!!!!!!
