Great explanation Review by Marie

Those drawings showing how to substitute short row shaping for bound off shaping in a pattern were worth the price of the video to me.

Nancie does a nice job of explaining what she's doing but it seems she was very rushed in this video (and in some instances it seemed things had been edited out that would have been helpful to see). I wish she'd been given more time to elaborate.

Both the baby sweater in this video and the one in Knitting Around the Edge are just darling but I was unable to find patterns for them on Ravelry. Are they available somewhere for purchase?

Good DVD Review by Leigh

Good course, I learned a lot when Nancie explained short row techniques for sweaters.
