Fabric Adhesive for Securing Yarn Tails and Knots

I stumbled across a Fabric Adhesive the other day at Michael's Craft Store. I had been looking for something that would secure my yarn tails and knots. It is washable and drys clear, although it does stand out on black yarn if you were to use it in a visible place. The name of the product is Fabri-Tac by Beacon Adhesives. I was thinking this would work on the tails and knots in the granny squares as well and keep them secure, so not to slip out of place after washing, as it the case in many instances where there are tails.

Summer Days of June

I have been on vacation so the crochet video's may slow up a bit over the summer. Some of you have requested demonstrations. I will do what I can to research them and see if it is something I can put in to video. I stay away from patterns in general, because there are copyright issues and they are to long to put in video format.

When I started the video's, they were meant to be used as a tool for begining crocheter's to learn how to do basic stitches and various stitches to crocheting. Once the beginning crocheter gets the hang of the stitches, they should be able to approach any pattern and accomplish it on their own.

I will do requests for stitches, that someone might want to see a demonstration of. Don't be afraid to ask.
