Two More Garter Bar Videos

The speed ripping video is up. It also includes a practical piece about getting stitches back in the hooks when they're messed up:

But here's the one I'm dying for y'all to look at - I came up with a whole new approach to lesson 4, which was how to knit garter stitch. I wanted to answer some questions that came up and address the problem of how to make it easy to see what's going on.

I start out filming normally, then film from underneath the machine so you can see the needles catching the stitches after the flip, which is the part that most people find hared to understand. After that, I did a bunch of rows of garter stitch, and for fun, speeded up the video of the repetitive steps so you can see enough rows to form a nice swatch of garter stitch.
