Watch the first 7 minutes of the video. If you have knitting needles and a yarn try to follow the directions. Then view the video again with the sound turned on. If you are already a knitting pro, you can find a different "how to" video on YouTube to try to learn something you cannot do. What was the difference in your experiences between the two viewings.
