I stumbled over a nice little site for the 'New to knitting' crowd. (there's also free patterns to entice the others). Its a niftly little site that has little videos (FOR FREE). I must've watched a dozen of them this morning. Vicki Howell she's not, but she did manage to demystify Magic Loop knitting for me, as well as those pesky Kitchener and mattress stitching. Check it out. http://www.knittinghelp.com/ Best to you all.
