Unexpected Power of YouTube

A while ago, when I published the Koigu Interlocking Crochet Scarf pattern, I put out a small video tutorial to help guide folks in following the pattern instruction.

Little Did I Realize

I honestly figured I might get a few hundred views of the video, but I'm starting to understand how some videos go viral.

It seems that this video has had almost 39,000 views.

I guess this video really does show you how to make the Crochet Interlocking Scarf without purchasing the pattern, so I guess that might explains some of the interest.  But even more incredibly, it seems that the more popular videos are, the more they're recommended when you watch other videos on YouTube.  So, the more interest a video has, the more exposure it will get.

It's no wonder I guess that cat videos can have millions of views.

If you do go out to view this video (or any video on my YouTube channel), please take a moment and "Like" it (or Dislike if you do) and feel free to leave a comment.  You can also subscribe to my channel if you'd like to make sure you don't miss any of my upcoming riveting videos!

The size and energy of the on-line knitting community never ceases to amaze me.

Current Knitting

I started work on yet another niece blanket.

Yes, I have lots of nieces, and each time I give away one of the blankets, I realize there is usually another niece sitting nearby thinking, "When the hell do I get my QueerJoe niece blanket?"

This blanket is made using Maypole by Euro Baby, and I'm using the linen stitch
