If you want to knit, buy this DVD! I was knitting so fast I couldn't believe it. The teacher is clear and encouraging, and the video is so close-up I could see the grain of the wood needles. I'm only in the beginning of it, but the rest looks awesome. I'm actually knitting, and my first scarf is looking good. What more can I say? Plus, there are free patterns to download from their website. What a bonus! It's the best instructional dvd I've seen yet.
I'M 51 YEAR OLD AND NEVER KNIT UNTIL I RECIEVE THE COMPLETE BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO KNITTING. I LOVE EVERY STEP OF THIS DVD. I'VE ENJOY MS. McNALLY TEACHING, SHE SPEAK VERY CLEAR AND TAKE HER TIME TELLING YOU HOW EACH PEARL OR KNIT IS MADE AND WHEN YOU MISS MAKING A PEARL OR KNIT, YOU CAN REPLAY IT OVER MANY OF TIMES. MY 7 YEAR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER IS INTO KNITTING NOW, SHE MADE A HAT AND A LITTLE BAG. THE BACK ROUND SO PRETTY FULL COLOR OF YARNS, MAKE YOU WANT TO BUY ALL THE YARN FROM MS. McNALLY DVD. WE CAN'T WAIT FOR PART 2 OF HER NEW DVD. SO I COULD KNIT A COAT SWEATER"SMILE". THANK YOU MS.N McALLY FOR PART 1 IT'S THE BEST DVD FOR LEARNING TO KNIT.......
I have tried books, online info, etc to try to learn how to knit. Finally, with the help of this dvd, I am a knitter! It is a wonderful resource if you are looking for a great, self paced instruction. What I loved the most about this dvd is that I can pause and go back and rewatch a step until I really get it. It is wonderful that you can see what she is doing with her hands because of the angle of the camera it looks like what you see when you are looking down at your own hands. Happy knitting!
