Second set of DVDs from Lucy

I just received my second set of Lucy Neatby's DVDs -- these are on socks. She is well-known for her socks, and she presents many of them on the DVD. As she herself says, the DVD is not intended to be viewed from beginning to end, and it is not a class on how to knit socks. But she presents it like a resource book, with an index and you can flip through it, and watch any particular clip you need to see, from casting on, knitting toes and heels, to casting off, and all variations in between.

Lucy is a charming lady in her own right, notwithstanding the blue and pink hair, the mis-matched earrings and sandals. She wears the most amazing double-layered vests, and incredible fairisle sweaters! I've seen some of them in person, and they are as exquisite as they appear!

I took a couple of classes from Lucy about a year ago, and she is very giving and explains her procedures very simply, clearly, and with a tremendous amount of patience! She is the same in her videos as well, with a tiny spark of humour as well. The camera shoots everything right over her shoulder so you get a knitter's viewpoint of what is happening with each technique. It was so wonderful to see her handling the needles and yarns the same way I do! I like her!

If you go to her site: http://www.tradewindknits.com/ and with the exchange rate, you are getting a good deal when you order these DVDs! I am not aware of any outlets in the US that carry them, but you might ask her. Unfortunately, I am not affiliated wtih Lucy in any way; I just really like her and the DVDs. These are well worth adding to your library.

Bill, You'll like them. I

Bill, You'll like them. I have watched my set several times. Although some of the information is very basic, I learned enough new things to make the cost very worthwhile. Jesse

My knitting is totally tubular!
