It has been quite awhile since I posted a tutorial. I don’t have a video camera, but I have quite a good still photo camera that has the video option, and it just seems to take forever. I five-minute tutorial can have as many as ten takes, and then the editing. After all that, I always find fault with the video, but as long as it conveys the message, we’re doing okay. This time I tackled the Magic Circle, which is one of those simple innovations that makes a big difference, and one wonders why it’s never been thought of before.
Which brings me to my observation. I learned how to knit and crochet a few years back (euphemism for a LONG time ago!), and the main source of communicating was through paper publications. You know, you still see the books on sale at the craft and yarn shops. However, I’ve noticed that since the internet, people have actually been coming up with patterns and techniques never thought of before, or at least, never shared with so many people. My question: has the ease of communication via the internet created a more prolific crafting community? Seriously. Am I the only one who’s noticed this? Let me know your thoughts on this!
