5.0 out of 5 stars I had no idea! Oct. 29 2006
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
I purchased this DVD because I thought I might see what I already knew from a different angle. I had no idea how packed with information and ideas "Art of Knitting" is.

The first five minutes paid for the effort. And I had no idea that it would go on for hours and hours. You need to have plenty of coffee ready and forget about doing any thing else the day you start to watch this DVD.

It is organized like an animated magazine with articles and sub-articles to those. Each is well titled and gives further reading or viewing references. Like a magazine not everyone will be interested in every section; yet you can always fine something and much is serendipity.

Not everything is physically knitting yet they go trough all types of knitting forms. There is a quick section on the difference in holding thread as in American vs. Continental. If you ever watch any Agatha Christy miss Marple movies with Joan Hickson then you get a good dose of Continental or European knitting methods.

Everyone knows that the process of knitting is just mechanical; you can do most while watching TV or holding a conversation. But what to knit, what looks good, and what works well as clothing, accessories or art is an other matter. We even get a crash course in color psychology.

If I covered everything on this DVD it would take a book. And this is just one of a series.

It is safe to say this is one of the best investments you could make.

There's so much great stuff in this DVD. If you are a beginning knitter, this is like having a private instructor in your living room; you can learn at your own pace. If you are intermediate, you can sharpen your skills with techniques that will tempt you to try other fun projects, beyond scarves. And advanced/all knitters, there's an interesting color theory section, a fit-to-knit workshop to keep your muscles in condition, a demo on wire knitting, a very informative "fiber care" lesson, lot's of fashion inspiration and fun stuff to watch (the alpaca sheering is SO cute!). I love how easy it is to get to whatever subject you're looking for, with the interactive INDEX. Oh - and the knit circles in CA and NY are a stitch!
The perfect gift for wanna-be-to-expert knitters.

4.0 out of 5 stars informative and enjoyable June 13 2004
I very much like the idea behind the 4-DVD collection- can't wait to have the fourth, on knitting with kids! First DVD had so many chapters it was impossible for me to watch them all in one night...Lots of addresses and websites to check ...Many thanks for the tips on posture and common mistakes to avoid while knitting- will try to follow the advice. My only complaint(but I am not the first here) regards sound, especially in some parts of the DVD.This can be improved. Among my favourites are the chapter on shearing alpacas and the one on novelty yarns.I am not sure whether one can really learn the basics from a DVD ,but it seems possible these days...
