Great videos for new weavers, covering the basics of warping, and weaving without too much fuss.
Warping in Less Than 3 Minutes
I love this video because it is a superfast refresh on how to warp your rigid heddle loom. It doesn't go into every little step, but it is a great way to shake the cobwebs loose if you haven't warped in a while.
This instructor does the steps in reverse of how I do it, but it might be an easier way of understanding this technique.
My favorite quick reminders on heels, toes and other trick sock spots.
Knitting Help - German Short Rows

TheKnitGirllls Tutorial Series - Afterthought Heel
Afterthought heels are amazing for self-striping yarn. The only difference for me, is that I pick up FOUR stitches between the two sides, this gives me a little bit more space in the heel (to adjust for my high instep) and to avoid holes I need to close at the end.
Kitchener Stitch to Finish a Sock
Knit off purl, Purl off knit. this is what I sing to myself as I graft closed the toe of a sock.
These are my fave ways to join, ball and re-twist yarn.
How to join your yarn by making a double knot
This is how I join yarn. If I'm worried about my yarn falling apart (which has happened to me before) I will knit both tails in for a few stitches which secures everything and is surprisingly invisible.
How to Wind a Center Pull Ball of Yarn (By Hand)
I mostly do this with my hands, because if I'm somewhere without access to a ballwinder, I'm usually not in spot where I have large knitting needles. I usually start with a yarn "butterfly" but the concept is the same.
Twisting a Skein
This one is for my brother-in-law who is learning how to twist skeins so that he can pull his weight at the Georgian Bay Fibre Co. studio.
