Great presentation with good repetition of steps. Dialog was limited to the necessary instructions.. which was welcoming.. as many tutorials are FILLED with lengthy incidental commentary that just takes up time.

Anne showed me how to arm knit a cowl with clear instructions and some good tips for pausing a knit and for picking up a dropped stitch.
