    This stitch, the “posted brick stitch” has such a lovely texture!
    I’ll watch the video….but personally prefer written instructions…my eyes sometimes have a problem ‘keeping up’ with a video.
    I shall watch anyhow. And want to just THANK YOU sincerely for helping the rest of us out here in “hooky-land”. It’s so kind of you to share your awesome talents like this.
    Since I’ve taken up my hooks again – after a twenty year absence – I’m amazed by the size and scope of this crochet community – from literally all over the world…and often it almost seems as if I’ve joined a whole new family!
    Thank you again! It IS kind of you to so freely share!
