Knitting help.com DVD

Does anyone have the DVD by Knittinghelp.com?  I am always searching for new ways to up-skill my knitting.  We don't have any knitting classes here and the selection of knitting books is poor.  I thought that this DVD might be useful.  Any comments or suggestions for other DVD's?

PS...

PS...this is the hat, it's pretty cool and very easy!  I love it!

Crochet Anyone?

Now, I know that I can probably find this online in 6.5 seconds, and I just might as soon as I am done posting this entry.  However, the hat that I just finished instructs me to "single crochet" around the edge in a contrasting color...now I have the contrasting color, and UPS is bringing me a big box of knitting supplies (and crochet hooks) this afternoon...but can anyone tell me (or direct me towards an priceless resource that can tell me) how I might go about this "single crochet"?  Clearly I am a crochet virgin!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks guys!

Right from the fleece.

I made a promise to my kids' grade 3 teacher that I would spin and knit her something if she gave me some fleece. She came through and I've started the process. Go to jigraknits.livejournal.com for photos.
