Well, day five took a completely different turn on my challenge. I was all set up and ready to do the online videos of Diana sock videos using the ribber. The day before I watched every video she had regarding the ribber. I listened to the lessons and the projects. A bit of over kill since it took hours. I thoroughly enjoyed it though.
When day 5 hit I clicked on the video and didn't realize that it's a basic sock making video. One needs to know how many needles to cast on. I didn't realize that it was a basic lesson since I watched so many videos I guess they all blended together. Also I didn't realize that I was so burned out on videos that after replaying video one 3 times I had no desire to play the other 2. I wanted to know how many needles I needed to cast on.
This is when I remembered that earlier in the year I had bought her Sock DVD. I was trying to get my ribber up and working at the time. It took me about 9 months of asking around to find someone who could get it adjusted properly. I lost sight of the fact that I had the Sock DVD.
Day 5 of my "25 Days of Diana" turned into organize your craft room and find the sock DVD. I found Diana's Garter Bar DVD and her Entrelac DVD, but I can't find the Sock DVD the very one I need. Diana is so helpful I may email her and ask her how many needles until the Sock DVD shows up.
I highly recommend the purchase of her DVDs. She does a really good job explaining and showing how to do the techniques. I'm waiting on her "How to Organize a Craftroom" DVD.
