I made a video tutorial for the Winter Lace Afghan a few weeks ago. It’s a stunning afghan that knit’s up quickly. I think it would be perfect for an heirloom gift.

    I just started learning to knit a few months ago. The pattern on the cover looks so lovely. I hope it’s not too advanced for me.

    I tried this before and lost it sorry if you get a partial post.
    I have crafted since the age of 4, my greatgram taught me how to chain when I had my tonsils out to keep me quiet. Over the many year’s since I’ve crocheted, knitted, embroidered including hardanger & my favorite tatting.
    I’m definitely a person that requires hand eye stimulation & challenges.
    Unfortunately I had a severe injury in my professional career about
    10 years ago which triggered a severe debilitating inflammatory arthritis in my hands especially. It has been hard to craft, now I have the time to do it. I need to for quality of life.
    About a year ago I discovered loom knitting but about gave it up twice until I found you on YouTube.
    This winter has been very difficult in Iowa where I live but, I’ve finished a project that you posted in a loom a long on U tube. I truly thank you Kristen for your tutorials.
    The challenge of learning the loom & the ability to complete the hooded scarf has given me what the doctors & medications cannot retrieve. Self reliance. Knowing I can still do something useful.

    Knitting lace is the last frontier for me. I have been learning different knitting techniques and looks for over 50 years. I first started knitting on sharpened pencils in 4th grade, and needles have always had a place of honor in my home.
