I would love to see you knit from your perspective, as if we were looking over your shoulder.

Hi there! I am on the KBTH list and read your blog sometimes. I realized that I had never commented and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your writing and your photos - I especially loved the roses from your garden. I live near a heritage rose nursery and the international rose test garden and have a soft spot in my heart for roses.
Your life story is very inspiring and heartfelt/heart affecting.
Thank you

Very cool! Thanks!

OMG! I knit just like Colin the Great!...even down to how we wrap the yarn around the fingers for tensioning. However, I don't knit as fast. Thanks Colin.

Just found your blog and was checking out the videos. This is how my grandmother taught me to knit 65 years ago. Haven't seen many knit this way.

Colin, thank you so much for posting this video!! I was watching it with my 8 yo grandson, who used to enjoy knitting a great deal. I taught him when he was 5, but when he hit 1st grade, it was no longer "cool" for a boy to knit. Until yesterday. I was watching your video in the morning, and he was sitting in the bed, next to me. Your video immediately caught your attention, and he watched it all the way to the end. When it finished, he turned to me and asked, "Do you know where my knitting is? Can I start knitting again?"

By the time I left for work, he was happily knitting away on a scarf for next winter.

Goes to show, doesn't it, that we never who our actions will affect, nor what impact they'll have. You, my dear Colin, have had yet another very positive impact on someone you've never met.

Again, thank you. For all your posts.
