I have been a crocheter for a long time--on-again, off-again--mediocre at best, but getting better all of the time! I tried knitting recently, and went through 3 different books trying to understand the written directions and diagrams. Your videos made a HUGE difference! I was finally able to cast on and knit!!! WOW!! I'm so excited! Thank you so much for all of the time and effort that you've spent putting your talent to use helping others. I just can't tell you how thankful I am!!!
