C2C Video Tutorial: Part One

Surprise!  I have an early video tutorial release for you guys today! I wanted to do this for a couple of reasons. One- I am super excited to get the Fallen Arrows Blanket CAL going! and Two- I want those of you who are unfamiliar with the C2C technique to have a chance to practice ahead of time if you want to.

I hope you find this video helpful, and don't forget to join me on Wednesday when the first part of the pattern will be released :)

A side note-the yarn for this blanket is on sale at Michaels this week for $2/skein!!!  You can make the Fallen Arrows Blanket for UNDER $40!

Celtic Winters Cowl Video Tutorial

Hey guys!  Last month I posted seven free patterns for "Seven Days of Scafie".  The most popular pattern was the Celtic Winters Cowl which uses the Celtic weave stitch in the round, and I had a lot of video tutorial requests!  And now I'm happy to say that it is here for your viewing pleasure ;)

Over the past month I have been working on fine-tuning my video filming.  I know that video tutorials are helpful for many when learning new stitches or techniques, and it is something that I am going to try to do more of this year!  The biggest trick is trying to find a time to film in daylight, while my 2 year old, 2 dogs and 2 cats won't disturb me (ha! That never actually happens).  But thanks to my daughter's long nap and my husband's interference with the critters, I was able to get this video shot last weekend :)  I hope that you find it helpful!
