I have never been able to follow that video. Did you learn how from it?
Not really. I followed Virchik's book almost to the T. It was confusing watching this video at first mostly because it was recorded when she was further along and the pearls kept getting caught when she pulled it through. I wasn't sure what she was doing. Now that I've been knotting for awhile watching it again makes sense. Watching Hisano showing the steps over and over again slowly and practicing along helped a lot. I knotted almost the whole strand during that session. Two weeks after the ruckus I was reknotting a strand and almost forgot how to do it. Luckily once I started playing again I recalled most of it.
