Knitting Daily TV – Season 2

Share Button

The second season of Knitting Daily TV has begun airing around the country  As a sponsor of the show, I had the chance to travel to Cleveland, OH last fall to tape my segments.  I can say it was much easier the second time around. 

Many more PBS stations have added the show to their offerings.  It’s still not available her in Western Mass, but we can get it vai the Connecticut PBS station.  Somehow I’m always busy at noon on Saturdays!  With that said, the folks at Interweave have been kind enough to provide me with clips of my appearances in season 2.   Today I’m going to share with you my appearance on episode #204.  In this segment, I demonstrate the Double Crochet Method for joining granny squares as you go:


Of the 14 segments I have taped over the two seasons, this is the first time I’ve watched one of my own!  Eek!

Want to know a little behind the scenes scoop?  The two granny squares I am joining were whipped up just minutes before we went into tape.  Using Valley Yarns Berkshire, Kim Werker created the burgundy square.  The other is the work of Eunny Jang.  What’s cool is that it’s the first granny Eunny ever made and Kim talked her through the steps as she was working on her own square.  Someday I will donate Eunny’s square to the Fiber Hall of Fame but for now, both live in my office as mementos.

Do you want to see some more sneak peeks?

    More sneak peaks – oh yes please! I might have to buy these dvds as I am pretty confident the show will never get Aussie air time.

    Absolutely, more sneak peaks! We don’t get the show on our local PBS.

    I think it’s funny that you don’t watch them.

    Hi Kathy,
    My area was airing the show last season. For some reason, not anymore. Do you know how the folks at PBS make the decision whether to show it or not? I noticed that many larger markets are not showing it. It can’t be for lack of interest. I’m sure the knitting/crochet community far out numbers those that enjoying watching “The Fascinating Habitats of the Fire Ant”!

    That was very cool. I don’t get Knitting Daily here in Western Oregon, and I don’t have the cash to just buy all the DVDs. So the sneak peak was neat to see.

    May I say that your diamond looks (as Donald Trump would say) “UUUUGE” in this video? Of course that’s all I noticed.
