You know the phrase.....basic black, black goes with everything.....you can never go wrong with black!

Well, YouTube is the new black! You can find everything on YouTube! Yes you can!

(Remember, I learned to crochet via You Tube...yup, a 60+ year old CAN LEARN NEW THINGS! and a lot of this new information comes from You Tube!) Here's my "Learn to Crochet" post....with the links that YOU might want to follow to learn to crochet! You are NEVER too old to learn new things!)

Knitters need Entertainment!

But once those borders are done.....it's all stocking stitch....knitting to motor along with!

Thank goodness for our modern technology!

Technology today makes it EASY to keep yourself entertained while knitting! You can watch a favourite DVD (the more times you watch a DVD the less you actually have to watch it - as you are knitting you see the movie in your mind even though you might not be watching the screen! I'm right aren't I???)
