A treasure of knitting videos by Cat Bordhi in UTube

I am still working in the sock. Yes, the same sock, not the second sock but the first and only sock I have been working on since July that my dad came to visit. Yes, part if the baby and part the tedious 5 needle knitting that makes it go so slow and part is the super fine gauge of 8.5 stitches bla bla bla.... more excuses... bla bla bla.

So, a couple of days ago I read an article from my email subscription to KNITTING DAILY about how this lady became a sockaholic when she found out how much easier it was to knit socks in two circulars instead of double points. I have tried to use two circulars before but I just couldn't figure it out. So I started to google about it and voila! 

I found a video in UTube posted by Cat Bordhi herself:

 



Needless to say I started to knit with two circulars yesterday and I am loving it! the sock is going so much faster!

Check out Cat's wonderful videos for anything you want to learn, they are a true treasure and the best part is... they are free!!!

Thank you so much Cat, you rock!

I am so inspired to try this now! I'm close to finishing the first sock of a pair for myself right now, but I'll try the 2-at-a-time method next time. :)

The snowman pattern I used is in the latest "Living Crafts," Winter '09. I LOVE that magazine! I'm going to make H a farm playmat from that issue, too. It's SO cute!

Thanks! I will go to B and N and look for that magazine, I don't think I have ever seen it. I usually only look for the knitting magazines...
