Hexalong trial youtube video

OK so here is a silent video clip showing how to tie a knot for hand sewing.  It is silent because I was too shy to talk so I will pluck up my courage for the next few clips.  But could you let me  know if you can see it and if you can see how I tie a knot.  I mean it's not a revolutionary knot or anything but it's revolutionary for me to manage the technical steps required to put a film on my blog.

  6. Never seen a knot tied like that before. I am going to try when I get home and report back. It looked a bit like magic. I best practice on some crap thread first ;-)

  8. I have never seen a knot tied like that either. I will have to give it ago next time I am forced to hand sew. Which I suspect will be sooner than I think - I better print off those templates asap as there's not much of the masterchef season left. Speaking of which... I better go, it's already started ;)

  9. You can definitely see it and I'm going to try it. But how can you go from dancing in front of the camera to not talking in front of it? LOL - you are too much fun. When I move to England (hopefully this year) I want to meet you! BTW-your kitchen or dining room is awesome!

  18. This is perfect. That is how I learned to tie a quilt knot years ago when I learned had piecing. It shows up perfectly.
