I am so excited!
I just learned how to tighten up my purl stitches in knitting. I have always silently hated my purl stitches because they were so loose. I tried all kinds of ways to tighten them. Who knew that all it would take is a video published by Cat Bourdhi on youtube.com? I watched it over and over with needles and yarn in hand. The stitch is actually the Norwegian Purling method, if I'm not mistaken. If you follow this last link, go almost to the bottom of the page.
P.S. Sorry about turning on comment verification, but I've a couple of strange comments lately that I've had to delete.
