Movie Reviews

This DVD is Excellent!

"I just got this DVD a few days ago, and I am in love with it. The DVD is NOT just for children; adults who are just beginning to learn to knit can benefit from it too. The children are adorable, and they make instructions clear (I was somewhat worried about this, but the children are GREAT) and much more entertaining and fun to watch than an adult could. The DVD also has a very lovely woman storyteller who tells stories that go along with the steps of knitting. These stories are memorable and help the beginner remember the order of each step. I highly recommend this DVD for both children and adults. You will have fun and will be knitting in no time at all. Enjoy!"
Great for Everyone!

"My 6 year old learned how to knit about 6 months ago. She had lost interest a little bit because it "took too long" to finish a scarf. Since watching the very entertaining dvd, she has renewed interest and is knitting faster than before.

It covers cast on (long tail), knit stitch, purl stitch, picking up a dropped stitch and bind off.

The dvd is fun for the whole family to watch and is interactive. It teaches how to knit a ball, step by step, having you knit along and the dvd automatically pauses until you are done with the section and you press play.

It also shows how yarn is made from shearing to spinning yarn.

I highly recomend this dvd to everyone, regardless of age or knitting experience."
What a great way to teach kids how to knit!

"This DVD is really wonderful!
Little Ryan is an amazing knitter and an excellent teacher. I am a knitter and he actually showed me a way to cast on, I never tried before.
As I said, I knit, but am not the greatest teacher, so this DVD is a great way to teach the kids in my life how to knit.
The animated knitting fable is also great and once you learn, you can make the knitted ball project on the DVD.
Summer's coming, so it's a great time to give kids a fun activity to do.
You'll love this DVD!"
For the Teaching-Challenged

"I wanted to teach my children to knit, but kept being stymied by my inability to put into words what needed to happen with the yarn when making the slip stitch, casting on, and knitting. In fact, after several attempts to teach my teenage daughter (who is motivated to learn), I was informed that I was the worst teacher ever.

This DVD is a godsend for people who want to teach their children to knit but don't have the teaching skills. The first section is taught by a young boy and he uses such cute descriptions for the actions. Making the slip knot is "Criss Cross Applesauce" and he is a real inspiration to younger kids who seem to be willing to stick with it longer when they see a young child teaching.

The DVD also has a section taught by a grandmotherly woman, who also matches the knitting motions with vivid stories to help children better remember what they are supposed to do. She also shows two young children how to make their own knitting needles--cool!

Another section shows kids how to knit a ball (or a hat, depending on your preference), and the final section takes kids on a tour of an alpaca farm. They show how they shear the animals and turn the wool into "roving." What a blast!

I highly recommend this video to anyone who would like to teach their children how to knit, or who would like very easy and non-threatening knitting instruction."
