Armenian Knotted Lace Video, The First

I actually managed to do the video yesterday. Yes, I am surprised at myself as well. The kids were off in the afternoon with grandma and so I got everything together and made what will be the first in a short series of tutorials for Armenian knotted lace. This one is just getting started and teaches the Armenian knot stitch in a simple loop. I'm not going to tell you how many takes it took to get the video done, nor am I going to say how many were spoiled by cat and how many by my own cursing over mistakes. I just want to make sure that you know that I will be spacing out the videos a bit to keep my frustration level down.

So here is the video. You can find the it on Instructables too if you prefer. I hope that you find it helpful and it makes sense. I'm not sure what the next one will be on, likely a different stitch, but not sure which. No, I did not mean to rhyme that and I'm sorry.

Thank you! I'm busy with a load of knitting projects right now, but as soon as I'm done with them I'll try this.
Have a nice school break :)

Congratulations on your video! VERY nicely done. I'm in the middle of a wedding present right now, but you've definitely piqued my interest in giving this lace a shot. Looking forward to more!

Wow, this is fantastic! You make it sound and look so easy. I tried this on my own twice and never made any progress other than a tangled mess. I'm definitely going to give it another try. Got some tatting projects I really need to finish first, but I know where to find this when I can devote some time to learning. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the tutorial! I am using the book Mediterranean knotted lace by Elena Dickson, but it is so good to see how it is done. I would love a tutorial on a doily or the pineapple motif.

very nice video and very nice of you to share your skills. any chance of letting us see one of the cat outtakes - it's probably adorable - at least to us since we're not the videographers. thanks
(deleted the first - had to correct some errors)
