New Video - Kitchener Stitch from the Knit Side

I put this video up for April early - around last week.  It was my answer to a question on the sock knitting machine list, about how to Kitchener stitch (graft) a seam from the stockinette, or knit side.  Typically, machine knitters graft from the purl side, but learning to graft from the knit side can be quite useful. 

This is a little bit like "smiles and frowns" stitch, and even if you are a great grafter, learning to do it this way will undoubtedly help you with your grafting tension because you can see the formed stitches from the right side.
