This week I got the opportunity to screen of the first episode of “The Knit Show” and participate in a Q & A with it’s host Vickie Howell. She is one of my favorite knit and crochet designers. You may recognize her name she was the host of Knitty Gritty on the DIY Network and Knitting Daily on PBS.
The show really seems to be a labor of love for Ms. Howell. She talked a lot about building a community of knitters. Encouraging viewers to organize public knitting groups called “knit hives”. Each show includes two segments discussing techniques complete with downloadable patterns to the projects that are showcased. As well as segments about tools and other thing of interest to crafters.
The show is fun and Vickie Howell was very open and personable. If you knit or chrochet you should check it out. The first 10 episode are available on You Tube or at www.theknitshow.com
