The comment was in regards to my Knitting Fundamentals: Episode 2 Long Tail Cast On Basics. In short the viewer felt I over complicated the tutorial. Now, I don’t know if they meant I was unclear or providing more information than was needed. If it was the former that’s a problem because I’m always seeking to be clear. But, if it’s a latter. I’m okay with that.
Watch the video
But, the truth is there are a ton of videos on YouTube that will give you the quick tutorial. And I want to do something different with this series. As I said in my intro video, I don’t want to show people just how to do something in knitting, but why the technique works the way it does. My goal is to provide a deeper understanding of this craft.
Franky, I’ve done a lot of reading on knitting. And I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how knitting works. I find it fascinating how just two stitches – the knit stitch and the purl stitch – can create such a breath and variety of different fabrics. It’s magical.
I think this study has made me a better, more confident knitter. I think I’m better able to troubleshoot when I have a problem, and tackle projects that challenge my skills.
Knitting Fundamentals may not be for everyone. I might share more information than people need at times. But, I’m gong to keep making the videos I want. And if I”m not clear on something, pleas let me know so I can do better.
