    What a great idea! It was fun to see your knitting as you spoke about it.

    I really like your video format. It is something I’ve been thinking about since VK came out with their video preview/review of their designs. The sound is fine. The color looks good, but I can’t really judge that well; monitors vary a lot and I’m not familar with the yarn. This last video was a little short for me (maybe I’m getting hooked and want more?). I didn’t understand your comments about Koigu and Smooshy being “hard”. Maybe you could hold a strand of the yarn when you review it and explain more?

    Other than that, I love it. It’s real, it’s personal and transmits the details of your projects so well. I watch it FULL SCREEN (and that’s pretty darn big). The only other thing I’d like to see is you standing. While it may be a logistical problem, it would have a couple of benefits: the modeling of a finished sweater would be improved; and you could add more movement to the video to heighten the interest.

    Thanks for this. I’m sure it took a lot of effort, but is is well worth it.
