Flat 3-ndl BO at Vimeo OR YouTube – 5:43. This is not the regular 3-needle bind off, and it is awesome!

Gauge at Vimeo OR YouTube – 8:15. Ever wondered if you were taking gauge correctly? Watch this and see how Jill does it–and get tips to do it yourself.

How to Proceed at Vimeo or YouTube – 6:16. Ever get into a place where it feels like you have a juggling act, not a knitting project? Jill considers one of these she created and gives you some tips.

Lisse Hat Bobblets (in the round) at Vimeo or YouTube – 1:53. Let Jill show you how to do the bobblets for the Lisse Hat.

PU stitches between edge and next st at Vimeo OR YouTube – 6:09. What does Jill mean when she says to pick up between the edge and next stitch?

PU YO at Vimeo OR YouTube – 5:53. This tricky little technique is genius. Jill didn’t invent it, but it is worth a watch.
