Video: Come to the Knit-Out With Me!

Feb 20, 2009

I might become a video nut. I bought a teensy weensy video camera recently, and suddenly, I'm realizing how much fun it is to send video emails to my family and friends, and take little videos of my new kitten...so when I went to the Knit-Out & Crochet 2009 event, sponsored by the Craft Yarn Council, last weekend, I was determined to videotape everything that moved. Knitting designers, famous authors, random knitters-in-the-aisles...no one was safe from my cute little video camera.
It was a blast. I got to interview Edie Eckman, designer of the gorgeous Santa Fe Shawl that appeared on the Summer 2008 cover of Interweave Crochet. I got to interview Debbie Macomber, the author of the Shop on Blossom Street books, and, yes, I did get to do some knitters-in-the-aisles tapings. 

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then perhaps a video is worth a thousand pictures? Click on the picture below to get a peek for yourself at some of the happenings at last weekend's Knit-Out & Crochet 2009!

Enjoy!

Do you knit for charity? Need a little inspiration for your next afghan square or chemo cap? Knitting for charity can be deeply rewarding; throw in some interesting cables, a great lace pattern, and those simple afghan squares can become a knitting adventure! 101 Stitches to Knit is a boxed set of cards, each with a different stitch pattern clearly illustrated and explained. I love these cards, because you don't have to lug a big book around with you--you can just choose an interesting stitch, pop the card into your knitting bag, and your charity knitting is ready whenever and wherever you have a few minutes to work on it.

Purchase 101 Stitches to Knit

And for the crocheters out there, we have the crochet set: 101 Stitches to Crochet, with both basic stitches and crocheted motifs to choose from.

Look for 101 Stitches to Knit and 101 Stitches to Crochet at your local yarn shop, or buy them online from us.

I want to join Knitting Daily and receive your daily e-mails. I have "joined" and have sent my e-mail address as well as confirmed my password. I have yet to receive mailings from you as a fellow knitter does receive from you. What am I doing wrong? smoggit49@hotmail.com

Thanks much for the free sock patterns, Sandy. I have knitted since I was 5, my grandmother taught me, I had never knit socks until about 6 months ago. Although it is tedious, it is portable and you can stick your project into even the smallest purse. BTW earlier someone mentioned a problem downloading. I have a 9-yr-old Dell with ME and have no problem once you clic through the window that says you cannot save changes. If you need to make user changes, just clic select text and copy/paste to word and make any changes you need like increasing the font size for easy reading. DremaO--The first Knit-Out landed on my birthday, Feb 18, I have gone all three years as a special treat--the show always seems to be the 1st or 2nd week end of Feb. See-ya-there next year!
