I love the fact that you don’t speak during your videos. I have tried several videos on YouTube but always end up here. Americans post loads of videos, but mostly jabber on for a good five minutes before getting to the point. I almost tare my hair out trying to watch, but your videos are crystal clear, short and absolutely fantastic!

I learn new tequniches and patterns through video, but how can you learn without voices. I need to hear as well as watch what you are doing. Will that ever change. So many beuatiful patterns that I now can't work on.
