Beautiful! I wonder how many skeins I would need to make a King size blanket?!

I enjoyed watching your video but you speak too fast, can be confusing when describing how you are counting and moving the zig zag to the different directions. Slow it down, and try and use less words because so much talking makes it more confusing and it doesn’t have to be. I hope you take this suggestion to make a more concise and clear tutorial. Very pretty.

Thank you so much,
