    Hey Chandi….Love your videos and your sparkling personality! Your videos are clear and encouraging to new knitters because you make the process sound easy as well as fun. I am a relatively new knitter with only one year of experience, so there are many knitting processes that I have not yet mastered. I would like to learn how to do short rows. Do you have a video explaining how to do short rows? Thanks much!

    As a fairly new knitter, I have been intimidated by cables because of the need for extra the extra needle and steps. However, this video is amazing and you make it look nice and simple. I think I’m going to have to give them a go on my next project. Thank you for sharing, Chandi!

    Hi Chandi,

    I started knitting a few weeks ago and I learned from your videos! Thank you so much!!! I love the videos and the blogs- they bring me a lot of joy. I really enjoy knitting but I’m veeeeeery new. I’d love some videos on more basic projects, knitting on a circular needle or knitting a hat! Any basic knitting videos would be awesome. Thanks again for your beautiful website and beautiful yarn! xx

    I’m not sure if this was where you meant someone to comment when entering your contest ( which I saw on Facebook), but I will leave a comment here since I said I did. I like the tip for how to cable without a cable needle. It looks like it could go faster. I will definitely be trying it out. I look forward to exploring your website and your blog posts. Some of them look quite interesting. I learned how to knit 2 years ago (first project was socks) after over 30 years of wanting to learn. It’s never too late.
