I searched the forums before posting this to avoid duplicating a previous question, but nothing turned up with my search terms.
I want to know about knitting DVDs. If you have any, which do you like the best?
I have several Meg Swansen DVDs and I actually use them for self-instruction as well as anti-insomnia. They are very pleasant and calming to watch and/or listen to at bedtime. I honestly believe I have learned things while in Limbo between waking and sleeping.
On the other hand, I find a Lori Knits video which I bought in a yarn store absolutely unwatchable. In contrast to M. Swansen’s natural presentation, the Lori Knits DVD features scripted content with super corny “jokes” and a very stiff delivery, especially by the students. The speaker’s eyes track back and forth as she reads the prompter. I’m sure the lady is very nice and a great knitter and teacher, but the video is not good at all.
