Added a new playlist to the YouTube channel - How To Sew By Hand, and embedded below. I know it's a little thin, but plan to add more to it this year. Special requests are welcome. Enjoy!
Star Trek Inspired Christmas Stockings
Ok, I admit it. I'm a Star Trek nerd. I've seen various Star Trek themed Christmas stockings out there and have been itching to make my own for a few years now. I used a pattern I'd already designed for CyberSeams back in '07, but added two cuff designs and seam allowances (so the pattern is newly revised!)
You can, of course, use this pattern for a non Star Trek stocking as well! And if you are looking for other stocking inspiration, check out our Crazy Quilt stockings!

OMG...Finally! Someone who can show me how to knit left handed. I've been waiting for this forever! ~ AmyW1205

Oh, I think I may cry! Thank you so much ~ hitshermark
Best video available for binding off. You made it look so easy! Thank you so very much! Just finished off first completed project; thanks to you! ~ HaPpYEvErYdAy7

thanks for the videos. I was up late on night and I looked up knitting and ur videos taught me how! i've made 3 scarfs thanks to your videos! thanks again! ~ twixxbars
I have tried and tried to teach myself knitting with books and I can't read a pattern to save my life and I also can't afford lessons. You are amazing. Thank you so much. ~ joshkenobi
Fantastic! I was bored this evening and fancied learning how to knit - 5 minutes later, I was sorted. Cheers! ~ JohnElwayFan2
I love your videos! Me and my mom knit. She said that she likes your videos THE BEST because it is confusing when people talk, but it is VERY smart that you type the words at the bottom it is VERY helpful! Thanks you are the best! You are the 1st to teach us how to knit. Thanks for all your hard work!! ~ soccerpink99
After watching your video I was able to knit with some average white yarn on a couple of old ordinary pencils. My Dad says he's going to buy me some knitting needles and once I master this, I can teach my Mom. Thank you so much!! ~ LadyDamonia
Thanks for the great tips! Your videos are really informative! ~ Ziegl18
Your vidoes ALWAYS make every stitch look so easy. I have learned more from watching you on these videos than I did by taking a class...and these are free. Thank you so very much. You have helped me learn many stitches. ~ HaPpYEvErYdAy7
I have just knitted my first few rows - thanks to you. I am using my kids colouring in pencils and some kitchen string but it is working!!! I thought I'd better have a go before I bought some wool and real needles. I might actually try this for real tomorrow. ~ multitrackmind
