Good evening to you,

I am a housewife,mother and grandmother and I love crocheting. When I came across this video, I just had to stop, look, listen, and then download. This is such a pretty shawl to make and I am looking forward to making it, since I have already downloaded it. I am interested in any video that will help me to crochet, since I am a ( visual learner).  Keep up the beautiful work.

 

Sincerely,

Dee

This amigurumi is a pumpkin MB2-631 test that is finished inside and secretly latched with a vine and leaf. Inside the pumpkin is a small, round black 70-448 test cat named Cricket. Cricket is very much a scaredy cat, hiding in the pumpkin from things that go bump in the night. 70-294 test But if you are lucky, you may see him romping around the pumpkin patch.

THIS VIDEO SUCKS!!!!!! LIKE MOST OF YOUR VIDEOS.  The producers of the webpage apparently are not the same people who produce the show or maybe they are.  The purpose of your efforts, whether video, tv or webpage, is to get viewers to become ACTIVE KNITTERS/CROCHETERS and buy yarn and instruction books/videos.  NOBODY IS GOING TO BE HOOKED, pun intended, by your videos because they are PISS POOR AND COMPLETELY UNPROFESSIONAL. 

Whoever your videographer is, they need to be fired.  You would do better to get a beginning knitter/crocheter and teach them how to run a video camera and how to edit.  A beginner crocheter would immediately recognize the worthlessness of this video.  To teach someone a crochet/knit pattern, you have to show the work from the SAME VIEW AS THE PERSON WHO IS MAKING IT.  The videographer has to STAND BEHIND NOT IN FRONT OF  the designer and zoom in on the shawl over the designer's shoulder as the designer holds the piece and points to the specific stitches she is talking about.  IF YOU DON'T SHOW THE WORK AND THE SPECIFIC STITCHES BEING POINTED OUT AS THE DESIGNER IS VERBALIZING THE WRITTEN PATTERN, YOU MIGHT AS WELL TURN OFF THE VISUALS AND JUST RECORD A VERBAL READING OF THE PATTERN WHICH IS USELESS, so you understand just how much value the visuals are worth?? Z E R O ! !  ! ! If you are going to video an actual HOW TO you have to get BIG NEEDLES/HOOKS, THICK YARN, and the videographer has to LOOK OVER THE DESIGNER'S SHOULDER AT THE YARN AS IT IS BEING KNIT/CROCHETED AND THE DESIGNER HAS TO SPEAK AND MOVE IN SLOW MOTION.  People who HAVE NEVER DONE THIS PATTERN BEFORE ARE WATCHING REMEMBER????  YOU CAN MAKE IT EASY TO SEE/UNDERSTAND, OR YOU CAN PLAY THAT STUPID ONE UPMANSHIP GAME THAT COMPUTER GEEKS LIKE TO PLAY ON COMPUTER NEWBIES- I.E. I WILL GO SO FAST YOU'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO FOLLOW ME JUST SO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH MORE I KNOW AND HOW MUCH MORE POWER I HAVE THAN YOU KNOW AND HOW LITTLE POWER YOU HAVE.  Knowledge is power, right? If teachers in schools, public or private, taught the same way you make videos, NO ONE WOULD EVER GRADUATE.  Your stupidity is truly stupidity because it is costing you BUSINESS...DUHHHHHHH
