Earlier this spring, I flew out to Cleveland, Ohio and spent a couple of days with the crew of Knitting Daily TV. Not only did I get to meet Interweave Knits Editor Eunny Jang who is also the host of KDTV (that’s us on set, to the right), but I also got to film three knit-alongs with her for this summer’s season of Knitting Daily TV. I also got to meet many other different designers and yarn-world figures who make an appearance on this season.
Although I’ve made a bunch of videos for our YouTube Channel and I’ve done some local TV interviews, I’ve never done a series of TV segments before. Although it looks quite warm and relaxed on set, it really takes the energies of quite a few people to make everyone look good, sound good, and to make the knitting and crochet process make sense on screen. It was fun for me to see how much filming could be squeezed into a couple of days and how many people it takes to make sure that all the pieces fall into place.
This summer, you can join me on Knitting Daily TV as I knit the Fallen Leaves Scarf, the Little Lamb Sock Critter, and the Tabard Vest–three projects that will be sure to expand your knitting skills. We’ll cover things like slip stitch knitting, cabling, and reading lace charts. It’s going to be a busy summer!
The season’s just starting, so click here to check out associate producer Annie Hartman Bakker’s preview of the first five episodes. Then click through to KnittingDailyTV.com and click on “TV schedules” at the top to find out when the show’s airing near you! This season is the 500 series, so any episodes starting with a “5″ are new. I can’t wait for you to join me!
