Follow-up to open ribber timing question:

The feedback I'm getting from various CSM'ers to my video open question is:

  1. My yarn carrier is too high. As far as ribber timing goes, as long as the yarn catches in the hook while the ribber needles is moving backwards, it's timed right.
  2. My stool is too wobbly.
  3. I am turning the crank too fast - slow down to ensure I don't drop stitches.
  4. I need to loosen the tension on my ribber needles. Ideally you want the ribber and the cylinder needles to form the same size stitches. In this video, it looks like the ribber tension is tighter than the cylinder tension.

Thanks to those who took the time to watch and comment. Hopefully this will help others out, too.
