Knitting Daily TV Turns 10!

Jan 14, 2013

I note from Kathleen: It's hard to believe another season of Knitting Daily TV is here! But it is, and I'm thankful. Each episode is so full of interesting techniques, patterns, and fun personalities. If you want to learn how to knit, or if you want some new tips and tricks, or if you just enjoy welcoming Eunny, Kristin, and Clara back into your home, wait no longer!

Here's Associate Producer Annie Bakken to tell you what's to come in series ten of Knitting Daily TV.

    
Eunny demonstrates fancy increases and decreases to shape your knitwear on episode 1003.

Clara Parkes and Eunny are in the knitting lab to talk about softspun yarns on episode 1005's Yarn Spotlight.


Behind the Scenes, Immersed in Yarn

As a knitter, there's nothing better than to be surrounded by the yummy yarns on the set of Knitting Daily TV.

We've taped the tenth season of the show, and I'm proud to say we get better and better with each series. Airing this January on Public Television, series 1000 of Knitting Daily TV is sure to delight our fans and hopefully intrigue new knitters to join us. Plus, if you're a yarn lover, tune in to see first-hand some of the newest yarns on the market.

Lucky Number 13!

We have thirteen new episodes, which means thirteen more quick tips and thirteen more getting-started segments with host Eunny Jang. We paid attention to what our fans wanted on our Facebook page, and we're diving more into sweater construction, lace knitting, knitted socks, and new design orientated segments. Viewers will learn how to tailor their knitwear, how to add drape using the right yarn and stitches, and even how to add small design elements that make all the difference.

Clara Parkes is also back on this season of Knitting Daily TV with thirteen more yarn spotlights, where all yarn lovers (crocheters, weavers, spinners too!) can enjoy her scientific, informative take on the newest yarns and how to best put these fibers to the test in your knitting. Learn the difference between handpainted and hand-dyed, woolen and worsted, and mercerized versus non-mercerized cotton. Plus, have you heard of possum yarns?!

Introducing Knit-Alongs!

Also brand-new are two knit-alongs with Kristin Omdahl. Mixed into our usual how-to designer segments, you can knit alongside Kristin to make the Agua Rios Vest and the Wheeled Lace Shawl.


     Kristin Omdahl knits the Wheeled Lace Shawl on this season's knitalong.


Both of these patterns are geared towards women, for beginning to intermediate knitters. They both look like elaborate knits, but are actually easy to master with Kristin's step-by-step approach. And, they're classic, ageless garments that we hope a wide audience of knitters will enjoy.

As always, favorite guests Laura Bryant and Barry Klein are also back for more knitting and crochet know-how with slip-stitch knitting, tencel yarns, and Tunisian crochet. This season also welcomes crochet designer Robyn Chachula with crocheted jewelry and edging advice.

I hope you'll tune into the show and enjoy watching it as much as I love being a part of it. And as always, please feel free to leave comments as to what you like, love, or want to see more (or less!) of on Knitting Daily TV. We're listening!

Tune in to Knitting Daily TV on your local PBS station, or order the DVDs now and get KDTV delivered right to your door!

Cheers,

P.S. What's your favorite thing about Knitting Daily TV? Leave a comment and let us know!

I really enjoy this show and am excited for the new season.  But where is Shay?

Can you  please show these on a British Freeview Channel, then advertise where and when you are showing them.

Reports of the programmes are good, but I have never been able to find them on UK English TV.  It is frustrating to find a review or blog  on features but never be able to see them.

Rhea from The South Bay area. In CA.  Why is the show not carried here?  Would watch faithfully!

Despite many requests from the local knitting guild, KDTV does air in my area. When searching for them this morning I've found that the DVDs are not available at my local library. When I tried to purchase the "premium collection" of the DVDs, I found that it's out of stock.  Any plans to re-issue this collection?  I'd love to see these available as a digital download.

Oh, one other thing that KDTV could do would be to make the shows available on the web site like so many other programmers do for other various TV shows. Perhaps you could make them available 1 or 2 weeks after they originally aired or something.. It would be really cool to be able to catch a missed episode. I missed all of season 800 because my cable provider didn't have the show listed at all. I am waiting on the re-runs once the new season ends to eventually catch season 8. The re-runs in NC are up to season 600 now, so it shouldn't be too much longer.

Could you also consider adding episodes?  Instead of 13 episodes, how about 18 or 20 each season?

I love the segments with Eunny explaining some technique at the beginning and end of the show. I am not a crocheter, so I don't pay that much attention to the crochet segments. I don't pay attention to many of the designer segments because none of the knitted garments that are on the mannequins have information on how we can get the patterns, etc. There was one in particular that was in one of the Laura Bryant and Barry Klein segments that was a beautiful taupe and black sweater that Laura said she designed, and it had different stripe patterns in it. It was SO gorgeous, and I looked high and low on this web site to find a link for that pattern. No such luck. I looked on Prism Yarns to find it, and it wasn't there. I don't know what the name of the sweater was to do a more extensive search, I just know how beautiful it was and how very much I would pay to get that pattern. Please consider having links to the patterns that you have for your designer segments. Obviously, I wouldn't buy all of them, but if I am having a fit for one like the one that I described above, I would buy it if I knew where to buy it from.

I don't care so much for all of the advertising at both the beginning and end of each segment. I think it is overkill. Yes, I know that these are the sponsors for the show, and I understand that the companies mentioned are the ones that pay for the show to be produced. I don't believe that they have to be mentioned at the start and end of each show. Just those parts reduces the time length of the show by almost 10 minutes! The show should be running 30 minutes, and a typical 30-minute TV show would have 20 to 24 minutes of actual showtime and commercials are placed in between segments. KDTV only has 17 to 19 minutes or so, and some of the how to segments are so short that one cannot learn the technique sufficiently. Please consider adding more content and taking out one of those advertising segments to do so.

Hi!  I hope you will comment on why Shay is not shown as participating in the new season.  Hopefully all is well with her.  I think she is one amazing lady.

Not showing on schedule for Houston PBS. When in Jan 2013 do you first air? I do hope you acknowledge Shay on air. I watchedher long before KD...a lovely lady who if she has retired will be missed. Thanks for all the knitting enlightenment!

wondered if Knitting Daily TV is shown in New York State and if so what time and day.  Would so like to watch.  Years ago there was a half -hour program at 7 a.m. but is no longer shown

on Jan 15, 2013 5:07 PM

Eunny looks great with short hair. I wish your program was one hour program, that way you could show samples of garnments and  stich along items, which would help me be more confident with what i'm learning.  But I love the show anyway. Can't wait to see the new shows, I have them all :).

I am just reading comments the comments here (from lulu, Arivel, cquan) re not receiving this program in California.  You can also add me to the list of ones not able to view Knitting Daily TV here in CA.  Over many many months, I have checked, re-checked, etc.  At one time did get various sewing programs, and one called Knit & Crochet Today.  Eventually these have all but disappeared.  

I would like to see KD publish an updated list for us here to check for viewing stations available.  Then no matter where a person resides, your readers here could at least have a ready reference chart to consult (in case new stations are added).  Also one would think that KD would have or exert more influence on getting these stations to make the broadcast available.  I have tried, but obviously no one is listening to "individuals".  We have constant re-runs of California Gold, (which I love as well) and decorating, woodworking shows galore, even Katie Browne Workshop but no K-N-I-T-T-I-N-G.  Maybe there should be more knit shows to choose from other than just "KD TV".  Might Katie B. Workshop consider incorporating their own version of an instructional knitting segment on their show.  Competition can be stimulating.  After all there are more crime & punishment programs than there are hours in the day, not to mention the court tv shows as well.  

If I sound disappointed it's because, I AM.   What can be done?  Please don't tell me -0-.

Congratulations Knitting Daily! I am a British knitter, but was so glad to discover you through Ravelry. I just love it that even a little simple thing I might not understand can be found on your site. I love the help and ideas I get through watching the videos, too. And I adore Eunny Jang!

Please show steps in the "throw" method, I get lost sometimes trying to translate from continental. Great show, I look forward to it every week. Esp. like segment discussing various yarns, their uses etc.

nt you to know that PBS here in San Diego California has completely cancelled all programs that had to do with sewing, jnitting and embroidery that many of us are interested in. Kids cartoons all day long until about 6 PM when they have news, like many other local and cable channels have. They continually have fund raisers with nothing but repeats, Very few programs that I watch on PBS.

So exciting to hear about your next new series and can't wait for it to start airing here. In my area they are showing the Series 900, so hopefully it won't be long before they start Series 1000.  I always learn so much and love the close ups when stitches are being demonstrated. I'm also happy to see Laura & Barry's segments as well as they always have such informative tips, etc.  P.S. love the new hairstyle Eunny! I wish I could knit as fast as you :)
