I needed this DVD Review by Dominique

I'd tried several times to figure out how to knit Intarsia and was simply stuck. I'm so very glad I bought this DVD. Now I will be able to review as needed, until I get this method set in my mind.

Confidence builder Review by Kelly

I loved this DVD! I am not new to intarsia and still learned new things. I bought this to learn to knit intarsia in the round but I feel like I had a great refresher coarse in basic intarsia as well as ways of making my work neater and tidier. So glad I have it in my library to pull out and watch again when needed.

Not all I thought it would be Review by Dain Frisby-Dart

I was drawn to this dvd by the desire to learn to knit Intarsia in the round, as per the description of the dvd. Although I did get a rough sense of how that could be possible (after watching the segment multiple times), I left this Intarsia workshop feeling pretty disappointed. Although I have been knitting for about 7 years, I've never done any real Intarsia work, so I was very excited about learning. Unfortunately, Ann Berk & the directors of this show failed to cater to those of us who are beginners in the technique. I felt completely lost from the get-go and I re-watched it from beginning to end several times because I just thought I must be missing something! Alas, it seems to be just the failure of the host and show producers to translate Ms. Berk's methods in a manner that can be understood by someone not in the room with her. Her work is beautiful and I'm sure she's a great designer and teacher, but this disc failed to not only not help me, but managed to make me feel like somewhat of a knitting idiot in the process since I couldn't get it.

Feels incomplete, not quite for beginners Review by Makiko Itoh

I have been knitting for years, but am not confident about my color knitting techniques, and was hoping to get a good ground level how-to with this DVD. Unfortunately that didn't happen. Watching this DVD felt as though I was jumping into the middle of a multipart intarsia workshop course. If you are a complete beginner to color knitting, you will be totally lost, so the description is rather misleading in that sense. There are some good tips for intermediate to advenced color knitters. The 'intarsia in the round' segment was especially useful. I'm sure that in person, Anne Berk is a terrific teacher. It's just that this DVD does not really do what the label says.
