Knit in public, knit in private, with your friends, or by yourself. This month, Knitterati focuses on knitting together in our knitting groups and discusses some ways to stay connected in the virtual world. Knitting doesn't require company, but it sure can be fun when it does!

Episode 3 - "Knitting Together"
In this episode of Knitterati, three knitters discuss their knitting groups. We learn about a great video pod-catcher I recently discovered. I demonstrate how to make your own unique point protectors. I share a way that we knitters can share our unwanted knitting books. And finally, Knitterati presents its first ever music video.
Special thanks to Lynn, Carol and Jean for taking the time to share about their knitting groups.
All production by Nina Casey.
This episode was filmed at various locations in the Washington DC/Northern Virginia area, including Nature's Yarns in Fairfax, VA.

Visit bookmooch.com to become part of this book swapping community. After a little further investigation, it appears that I may has mis-spoke in calling Bookmooch a not-for-profit. However, using bookmooch is still entirely free in every aspect. You can find me on bookmooch as ninaclock.
The "Notice Me" music video was created using stop-motion animation. This was my very first attempt at stop-motion and I'm very pleased with the results. I used this simple tutorial as my guide. "Notice Me" will be released by itself as a mini episode in the New Year; so watch for it and other minisodes.
