This series is incredible and perfect for those of us who are left-handed. She is easy to follow and I love that I can easily go back and review the videos. I can't wait for more videos from her!!!

I'm a school teacher, and i often teach my students to knit. I'm right handed, and have been looking for a good way to teach lefties. This video is excellent, very clear and easy to follow. Also, about 95% of my students are Hispanic immigrants, so they really enjoy seeing someone for whom English is not the primary language teaching.

If you ever do the videos (for right and left handed students) en espanol, that would be neat, too, for the newcomers.

Thanks!

Thank you so much! I've been trying to learn to knit from a book and wanted to learn the left handed way...correctly. There are several short videos out there and some show knitting thru the back loop, others thru the front. Thank you for clearing up the confusion and putting it all in 2 videos.
