This is the video that got me knitting. I had almost given up after trying a pattern that was knit flat and seamed, and then I met Elizabeth. She teaches the foundations so that you really know what you are doing and why, not just blindly following. It's a wonderful, soothing and witty video.

I found the instructions to be much too fast. She is obviously a very experienced knitter and the movements are too fast to enable one to grasp precisely what it is that has to be done. Much better videos free on youtube.

If you are unfamiliar with Elizabeth Zimmerman and have become accustomed to seeing her name (and Meg Swanson's, her daughter) pop up regularly in the fiber world...this is the dvd to introduce her to you. It is at once both practical and insightful, not only will you learn what it is about EZ that has brought her acclaim in both personality and expertise, you will be able to pick up your needles and follow along. Watch with a notepad and pen close at hand for useful tips, especially on steeks/cardigans and the sweater percentage system. For the beginner through advanced, the entire series (in three parts on two dvds) is worth watching through. Highly recommended.

The absolute best instructional dvd for knitters I have ever seen or used. Elizabeth Zimmermann gives simple, comprehensive and intuitive instruction for even the most befuddling knitting techniques.I had more "AHA!" moments watching this series than in all the classes or instructional books I have taken or read to date.
