Knitting is good for your health - and your duct tape prom dress!

I have two excellent knitting-related videos for you this morning. The first touts the powerful health benefits of knitting and crocheting, the most impressive of which is a 30-50 percent improvement in memory for the elderly. (This does NOT explain why, as a middle-aged knitter, I still cannot remember where I put my keys, the TV remote, or my cellular phone).

Watch CBS Videos Online

My second video pick of the day comes courtesy of my friend, Ellen who sent me this story of a young couple who used duct tape to make their own dress and suit. You've got to see it; they did a wonderful job.

And here's an extra goody for you today: another prom date couple dressed in duct tape. They get an A+ for creativity, but my God, I don't even like wearing polyester because it doesn't breathe. Imagine dancing - and sweating - in that dress!
