Next Granny Square Sneak Peek

This is the project that I am currently working on for the next granny square video tutorial. It may look familiar from the squares that I sent for the Project Linus Squares.

Recent Updated Crochet Video's

I am still working on re-rendering video's. It is taking on average about 5-7 hours per video upload to Youtube. Please let me know if you find a link that is no longer working in a set of instructions and I will update it.

Video Settings - YouTube HD

I have been working on fine tuning my video editing settings, to work with the changes that Youtube has made in converting to HD. In the process I have re-rendered some video's to upload again. I did not realize that I had such a big problem until a couple of people brought it to my attention about a week ago. Thank you very much or I would not have known. I had no idea that some were terribly blurry in some spots upon upload. I started looking in to what the problem might be. I found my answer in Youtube help. The file extension I was using is not compatible with HD so it is necessary for me to render video's in another file extension. I believe I have it worked out now. The month of January does not look to good so there will probably be more that I re-render. The knobby granny is looking pretty clear. I hope this fixes the compatibility issues.

This is a list of some that I have re-rendered.
