What a wonderful video. I have woven Egyptian diagonals before, but John included so many helpful insights, I know I got my money's worth and then some. This video taught me things that would have taken me many hours to discover on my own.  

The discussion of unweaving is something I have searched for in books, videos and online. At last. Thank you!

As for the 6-hole tablet discussion, well, that was quite the bonus.  I've never dared try that, but I feel ready now.

Yet another fabulous video from John! I never consider it a risk buying his videos, because they are always exceptional.

I have woven numerous Egyptian Diagonal bands from John's pattern book, but now I have a better understanding of how they work, and can think about designing my own patterns.

A request ... for ages, I avoided circular warps because I invariably found a knot or a break part way through warping, and worried that I would finish up with "lumps" in my band because of having to tie two threads together to continue the warp. Yes, I did eventually figure out that threads can be manipulated and tied together at the starting post (usually the tension peg), but John might consider briefly showing how to fix breaks/knots when circular warping (he does a great job showing how to fix errors during warping).

I always find myself inspired by John's videos, so now I'd better look out for some 6-hole cards!
