I recently received a review copy of the following:
Stitch Heaven Salutes Barbara Walker is a DVD with several hours of content. Here is the main menu:
I took photos of the DVD in progress on my iMac, by the way. I could use my mouse to select a menu item, but you could also use your remote control for a DVD player connected to your tv.
There are 18 different pattern stitches demo-ed on this DVD.
That’s the first page of the stitches menu — there are three pages of stitch pattern menus: lace, texture, and colorwork. When you select an item, you first get an overview.
And there is a video demonstrating each stitch!
The DVD also contains a great reference section:
And a video of Barbara Walker!
The same company has also released a knitting eBook, with videos embedded in the eBook. This is available in the iTunes store and is the first of a series of eBooks.
I think both the DVD and the eBook would be great for beginner or intermediate knitters looking to increase their skills.
So I’m giving away the review DVD I received. It has been opened and played once.
If you’d like to be entered in the drawing for this DVD, leave a comment on this blog post by noon, Eastern Time, on Sunday, October 16. I’ll use the random number generator at that time to pick a winner from the comments submitted.
I spent the weekend doing alarming things, knitting-wise. At this moment I have four projects on the needles. Those of you who know me know that this is virtually unheard-of. I can’t remember the last time I had more than two projects in progress at the same time.
Stop by on Thursday to see if I have maintained my sanity in these troubled times.
