This video helped me to feel confident trying my first DK project. I'm using some techniques not covered in the video, but the video gave me a lot of useful information a reference for other techniques I may wish to use in the future.
Lucy is a very good teacher and demonstrates the techniques very well. I learned a lot of useful tips and tricks.
I just found that overall, the organization of the dvd isn't to my taste and finding a particular technique was a bit difficult...but everyone's mileage varies there.
This DVD series is aptly named, Gems. They are a continuation of the Knitting Essentials series. Lucy Neatby, a highly regarded knitter/designer, has put together an invaluable resource for every level of knitter, from novice to expert. She demonstrates techniques in detail, that are not easily conveyed in books or patterns. It is well indexed for quick and easy referenceing.
I must add... Jimmy Beans is the best knitting web store.
