Learning Videos

As a homeschooling mom I have learned something about myself something that escaped me in school...I like to learn. I am dominantly a visual learner so I am jazzed about the whole idea of learning videos on the web.
I like to knit but am limited in my ability to knit. I have always wanted to knit socks, more specifically Christmas stockings, so I went on a hunt for a video to teach me how to knit socks. It was great! I found step by step lessons. I can't wait to drag my needles in here and get started. Guess what you're getting for Christmas? ;D
I thought I would look into a few other areas of learning. Here are just a few I thought were interesting. A word of warning when searching for videos~check out all videos first before you let you kiddos watch them the Internet can be a frightening place.

Youtube has EVERYTHING!!!!

They have origami, too, which is easier for the kids to follow than diagrams in a book.
