A New Cast On Method to Try

I'm excited to give this cast on a try. It looks perfect for knitting top down socks. It just came to me in my Berrocco Knit Bits newsletter.

Eli Pariser: Beware online "filter bubbles"

About this talk: As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there's a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a "filter bubble" and don't get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy.

This is a subject that has worried me greatly since I realized the implications of getting information tailored to my interests. Another thing I worry about is that the lack of exposure to new things will stifle creativity.

Darn It!

Since I've been on my sock knitting binge since October and have knit more than 30 pairs of socks, this video which I found on the Knitpicks web site and Youtube Channel is probably something I will have need of sometime.

The Knitpicks site looks like it has some good information and tutorials for beginning knitters as well.
