I'm with you, Jan. Sure, for example, Cat "improved" on the original magic cast-on because her style eliminates the need to knit into the back of the loops on the second needle. But, all I could think was, "I'm not in elementary school!"
The needles come in and chomp on the vine? The clock goes tick-tock? Come ON!
Just goes to show how different we all are. One person's "hoot" is another person's... Kinderarten teacher.
Interesting videos nonetheless.
