Recently (thanks to Google Alerts), I stumbled upon the best beginner knitting YouTube Video ever!!
It might not have the best production values, the lighting could use a bit of a tweek, the camera work might be better, and the teaching terms include things like “scooch” and “diagonal line looking thing”. So why do I love it SOOOOO hard?
Because this kid loves knitting so much that she wants to teach. That’s important enough that it bears repeating . . . she loves knitting so much that she wants to TEACH. That to me, is a beautiful thing, and nothing makes me happier, so that’s why I declare this:
The Best Beginner Knitting Video EVER!
So give her some love, give her some encouragement. Leave a comment, give a thumbs up.
Remember, our knitting future, rests in her hands!

I love when I get requests for Tuesday Tips. I demo a lot of different cast ons in pattern in my Craftsy classes, as well as my Interweave DVDs, but I’ve never demoed German Twisted Cast on in pattern.
