Experimenting with video

I don't have a real video camera, just a canon rebel which is nice for its class but not state of the art.  I am learning to be patient with technology and my camera man Todd.

Anyway if I could better figure out the editing program I movie I'd be ib better shape.  I'm not trying to do anything fancy but anyway I am finding that I am capable of making a video that explains things better than words or charts.

I hate translating charts to written instructions

I just thought I'd say that.  I am still doing it but damn I hate it.  It is so easy to make mistakes.
I will never do it again after this pattern.

I see it as being like taking the mona lisa and putting it through a shredder.
One line is one shredded bit of information.  A chart is like a cartoon rendering, not as pretty but the essence is there.

OK, back to translating.  I hope I don't make too many errors.  I'm tempted to offer this pattern with the disclaimer, "The written instructions are jacked.  Use charts."

Complete Monongahela Edge Progression

I just thought I'd share this.  It helps me see what's going on as I tend to be more visual than anything else.

Monongahela Arithmetic Edge Progression

This only shows the arithmatic progression and not the geometric one.  I think I'll doodle that next and make some big picture showing the whole thing.  This is more for me to help me estimate how much yarn the various versions will need.
