Video Organization

I have discovered a great website to organize my Youtube video's. It is: http://www.squidoo.com/tjw1963 You will be directed back to Youtube to watch the tutorial but it makes is easier to find what you are looking for.

Several have been placed in to modules by relationship to each other like the granny squares, flowers, amigurumi and hat & caps. I am working on it every day until I get caught up. I wanted to share and make it easier on everyone to find the video tutorials and see tutorials they may have missed.
