Ep 10 Recap, Review, and Socks

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:08 pm by Ivy

In this video we look back at how far we’ve come. Then we talk about our next project, socks. We talk about different forms of sock construction and why socks are so appealing. Then we tell you how to start knitting socks, which is exactly like how we started the mitten.

We referenced the Magic Loop Booklet for knitting socks on a long circular needle and Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles.

The YouTube videos are here and here.

Knitting Step By Step episode 9 — Slip Slip Knit

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:15 am by Ivy

In this episode we talk about our second decrease method, the slip slip knit. We show you the kitchener stitch to graft closed the top of the mitten. We also show you how to make your thumb stitches live, pick up stitches to get the thumb going.

For our iTunes viewers, we’re working on the problem with being able to transfer to the Video iPod. Make sure you are getting the files with the extension of m4v. That should resolve it for you. I’ll be converting the earlier files as soon as I can figure out how to do that without messing up the order on the feed. If you want to do that with your own files, go into iTunes, click on the file and click on Advanced->Convert Selection for iPod.

This is long, so there are five YouTube videos. Here they are: Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, Video 4, and Video 5.
