    I just wanted to thank you for putting that afterthought heel tutorial up. I watched it when you first posted it and, shortly thereafter, I found out that I had to make afterthought thumbs on some mittens. I knitted both pair completely and now I’m making all the thumbs…along with you…:-D I just sit in front of the monitor and literally go stitch by stitch to make sure I’m picking up these little buggers the right way. I was so worried I would miss the first stitch because I wasn’t reading the “v” correctly. I think I’ve got it now. THANKS SO MUCH!!! Absolutely first-rate tutorial – very clear instructions and nice and close and in focus. :-D

    This makes me such a happy wombat.

    Loved this and used it and it turned out great! thank you. You asked what else you could show us and I would love the magic cast on for the toe up sock. You do such a good job and you are easy to follow.

    Thanks so much for the tutorials and video casts. Always love seeing what ya’ll are up to. I don’t have anyone around me that knits so its great to have “virtual” knitting friends :)
    I want to get into spinning but don’t really know where to start. I’ve watched stuff on youtube but so many people have so many different videos and methods. If ya’ll could do a tutorial on how to get started in spinning i.e. what to do when you get fiber, troubleshooting etc and also some good suggestions on what type spindle or wheels are good. I know ya’ll talk about it some in different videos but it would be awesome to have it in one (or a few) videos dedicated to spinning. Thanks in advance!
    sidenote: I live in Tupelo and didn’t realize there was a LYS on the way to Memphis so I’m trying to convince my hubby we need to take a mini road trip and just happen to stop in at hank of yarn on the way to Memphis. I’ve never been in anything other than hobby lobby or joann to buy yarn so hopefully i’ll make it up that way before too long. Also, are there any LYS in Tupelo or closer this way that you know of?

    I have viewed the spinning tutorials several times & am convinced that spinning is something I very much want to learn. I am considering purchasing a spinning wheel in 2012. Since in your spinning videos you mentioned that you have all 3 wheels from Schacht, could you do a comparison between the 3 wheels i.e. pros & cons for each wheel, ease of spinning, plying , etc. Also, could you show spinning on the Matchless?

    Really like everything about your video podcasts.

    When doing Judy’s Magic Cast On for two socks on two circular needles, do you cast on both socks first and then knit the first rows, or do you cast on and knit first row for the first sock then cast on and knit first row for second sock separately? I’m new to toe up socks and also to two at a time socks!

      Hi there…. By now you probably have your answer, but I thought it might help to hear from someone else who is also getting started with 2 at a time toe up socks….me…..
      I am taking classes at my local yarn shop, Infinite Yarns. I was taught to cast on both socks at the same time. Also, letting the tail hang on the outside of the toe indicates where the beginning of the row is….

      Hope you have fun…..

    Thank you for taking the time to make the After thought heel Tutorial!!
    It is greatly appreciated.

  7. I found the Magic Cast On tutorial fairly useful as far as the part where you started knitting the stitches, then you went too quick for me to see which stitches you moved to the other end…I couldn’t see how you could have stitches on both needles yet be moving the knitted stitches along to the other needle….are you using TWO sets of circulars?
    I use dpns and I would really appreciate a video tutorial showing this cast on using dpns, also a little slower so you can really see what is going on.
    however, the actual casting on part, this was invalubale, because I’ve never been sure which way you put the yarn on the needles, and your tutorial made this very clear!
    Thank you so much!

    Your tutorial on the afterthought heel is awesome. It gives the clearest explanation and video of any that I have found. I am grateful, too, for the tip on knitting plain rounds first to increase the depth – a problem that I had not resolved by myself. Many thanks.

    THANK YOU for the afterthought heel tutorial! I love knitted socks, but I’m not a fan of knitting them. I’m hoping that an afterthought heel tube sock will help cure me! Great video and explanation.
