I have been knitting for over 50 years and in that time, I have developed an efficient technique which has gained me the title of ‘The World’s Fastest Knitter’. I am thrilled to share my two instructional videos - "The Fine Art of Fair Isle Knitting with Shetland's Hazel Tindall" and "50 Tips from Shetland Knitters". Elizabeth Johnston was adviser for the fair isle video, and appears on "50 Tips".

I appreciated your video so much. You somehow were able to interact with an imaginary audience in a way that felt very comfortable and natural. It felt like I was sitting by the side of someone I knew who was telling me very honestly about her knitting process. I loved that. In your video, I felt like I was with a comfortable longtime friend.
