Amy says: This DVD includes a spectacular overview of Grafting (free form Kitchener stitch), in virtually any situation. This will enable you to confidently employ severe surgery on your knitting, to \"cheat your way out of the direst emergencies.\" Indeed! You will see how to remove a section of knitting seamlessly, and sew it back together without a strand of unwanted knitting remaining. She even demonstrates it in stranded Fair Isle fabric, and on random diagonal intersections--and actually makes it look doable! She also includes a demonstration of Tubular Bind Off (the bind off for turtle necks), Magic Buttonholes (a unique buttonhole which I'm totally in love with), and afterthought pockets (pockets don't get any easier, or any nicer than these). These are all excellent techniques you will find worth knowing. Highly recommended! Don't miss her second DVD in the series, which includes surefire strategies for making button bands, necklines and armholes, perfect every time.
