Crochet DVD Review

A few months ago I did a giveaway for my Learn How to Crochet DVD. I was THRILLED that a Marine's wife won (military families give more than the get). Anyway, she was kind enough to write up a review.

When I received my dvd, I grabbed my yarn and crochet hook and popped in the dvd. It felt as if Kathy was welcoming me into her home. She sat me down for my first lesson, and I actually got it. I loved being able to pause and rewind so I could really get the particular stitch. No, my stitches weren’t even, but I was able to actually create a wristband for Munchkin’s American Girl Doll. (She was quite impressed.) Yes, I started out small.

Kathy starts by explaining the different sizes and types of hooks and by giving information about different types of yarn. She then goes over crochet patterns. From there, she describes and shows the different hand positions used during crocheting. Then, it's time to start crocheting! With step by step instructions, you learn how to do different stitches. By the time you are done, you will have learned how to change colors of yarn and make a dishcloth, a granny square, and a scarf.

I was so impressed with the dvd that I had to purchase her cake decorating dvd as well. Munchkin plans on using that to help her learn how to decorate a cake for my birthday next month.
