In response to a number of requests which I am finally now taking seriously, I’m considering producing a how-to DVD. Presumably, you all know how to knit and purl. But what else would you like to see in a knitting-related? What techniques have always puzzled you? Which guest instructors would you like to see (and what would you like to have them demonstrate for you)? Go crazy in the comments section, or email me directly.
Here’s the competition, at least those that are listed on Amazon, if you need ideas.
I think the thing that always throws me about knitting DVDs, at least the ones I’ve seen more than a few minutes of, is that they’ve got all this cheesy music playing while you’re trying to figure out what the instructor is doing. I mean, come on. Cheesy music never helped anyone concentrate. So even before the very first segment is taped, I make this promise for you: no panflutes. Ever.
And don’t be afraid to go into crazy detail with your requests. I like crazy detail. I’ve also been known to reward those who come up with really good ideas with gifts, lavish public praise, credits and yarn, so make sure to include your email address. Cough, cough.
Felting and spinning also a possibility, so feel free to pipe up about those, too.
p.s. No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke. My brain already played one of those on me the other night when I dreamed I was dating General Zod from Superman II (seen above). Seriously, brain. What’s up with that?
