Thanks Eunny,

I'm a big fan of the show. It's nice to have these techniques in video for my students.

Have you ever tried stringing beads using a dental floss threader? It's a quick and easy method, eliminating the need for a big eye needle and thread. It's a great way to get to knitting faster.

I would love to see more advanced knitting shows. It seems that most of the time is spent on the set up for a particular technique or pattern and very little time is spent on the actual execution of it. I realize you are always racing against the clock. Perhaps a series of shows for the more advanced knitter may be in your future?

Maybe a crochet show all on its own as well?

Thank you for your time.

Take care,
