Free Knitting Videos

This page is still in construction phase.  I am redoing all of my old videos, since they were done before I had a good camera.  I will be adding the links for the videos as time permits; I will be leaving all of the old videos up on YouTube until I have posted all of the new ones.  It has taken me years to make my videos, so it is going to take a while to get all of the old ones done again.  There may be a few that will not be redone, like ones that you really don't need to see up close what is being done.  I hope you will come back again soon to check out the new videos!
