- This is the advanced theory I was looking for.
- I bought the combo download (all three parts), but I've only watched Part 1 so far. And so far, I am impressed with Joni's explanations and demonstrations. Her blog posts about grafting have saved me more than once as I tackled something tricky, like grafting ribbed socks worked in the round. The videos are the perfect complement. Joni's charts and illustrations really make grafting make sense. Part 1 didn't address working in the round, though, and it's not mentioned in the description for Parts 2 and 3, so that's the reason for 4 stars instead of 5. Also, the camera angle is mostly good (showing the knitter's POV) but not always -- for example, I don't ever need to see an upside-down chart or text (this is a problem in many Interweave videos). Overall, very well done! (Posted on 4/27/2015)
