- Instructional Review by Diana
The material was excellent. The basic instruction was excellent. But, and please remember this is a personal opinion, I felt that there were two things missing.
First, not enough patterns. It's nice to have history, but if you are talking about knitting (stitch patterns, construction information, methods, etc.), there should be patterns. There were a total of two patterns, and I feel cheated.
Second, I found the author was so matter-of-fact, pleasant but not enthusiastic, about the subject, that it took away from my enjoyment. This is AMAZING stuff, and it was presented as if it were a shopping list.

- If you love the history of knitting... Review by Barbara McCay
...you will love this DVD! It's thoroughly enjoyable to see and learn about knits from yesterday. I love this DVD! Susan Strawn's enthusiasm for knitting jumps through the screen at me, and makes me want to sit down with her for hours of learning! Lots of information, including a couple of techniques. Highly recommended to those who are interested in the "Knits of Yore"!
