Just watched a preview of the show. It will be fantastic. Can't wait for it to come to Boston tv. I fell instantly in love with the Shauna sweater (I'm a cable freak!). Sandi of KD said we would be able to download a free pattern of the Shauna Sweater. I can't seem to find the download, can you please help all of the frustrated Knitting Daily readers? I want, no I NEED that pattern! Happy knitting, Suzanne

I'm sad too. Neither of my local PBS stations are carrying this, and I have only basic cable, so I don't get the digital stuff. I wish they were showing this on Hulu.com

I found the sweater if you are still looking for it:


if the link does not work go up to top of page, right side and do a search for Shauna.

Good luck and have a good day!

It's not airing in Kansas City, either. I guess if you want to see it, you have to move to Duluth MN. :-) I've already put in a request for it with our local PBS station, as I think that's our best hope for getting it aired.
on Jul 1, 2008 1:23 AM
Thank you for your comments. Each station chooses when and if to air the program. If it is not airing in your local market - please go to the station finder on the site and enter your zip code to find the name of your local station. Please call, write or email and let them know you are a viewer of the station and would like to see Knitting Daily TV. You can really help in bringing KD to your local market.

I have just requested our PBS station in Ann Arbor Michigan to include this show in its airing schedule - I hope they signed this show up and I can't believe it is not on without me requesting it.

Wow - seems like there are a lot of people not getting this show (yet) - I'm up in Canada, but our 'little' PBS station in Watertown NY has just started to air it - missed last week's episode as I didn't know about it. Watched the second episode today and am thinking trying the Shauna sweater. So far, so good - will be enjoying this show.

Hey there! I just watched my first episode, and want to tell you how much I enjoyed it. The projects were top notch, and I came right in to download them. The quality of the download is impressive also. Keep up the great work, and thank you for showing yarns other than Coats and Clark! Cindy

I am so happy that there is a new knitting program on for me to record. I can't get enough of new techniques and projects. The show was so informative and I can't wait to try the three piece corset set. I'm glad Shay is the host, loved her Needle Arts Studio program alot so I am glad to see she is still around. Rock on and knit, knit, knit!!!! Susan

It's unfortunate, but your show doesn't air in my area. I've been knitting since Junior High School, and to me it's a lost art. I've taught my daughter in law and she likes knitting when she has the time. I have made numerous sweaters and baby blankets, along with Layette sets. Always looking for new items to reproduce. Too bad your show isn't in Virginia Mary

It would be great if the camera was behind the person showing a knitting technique so that it would be easier to see and follow along. Deb

Enjoyed the show very much. I agree with Deb L, about the camera being behind the person, to see the technique a little easier. I do not knit Continental style, and thought it was a little hard to see from the front angle. Very glad to have access to the show, and yes, I did tape it to see later this afternoon! Diane

Enjoyed the show but it is very difficult to see what's going on with the camera in front of the person. I also have trouble logging in so I can get a pattern. Maybe one less segment would give a little more for detail on some of the patterns too.

I bought the DVD because I don't get this show in my area (NJ), and I watched the first episode this morning. It was very well organized, presented, and educational. One problem I hope will not be a recurring theme: the knitting close-ups are shown upside down! Why? Maybe I have an issue with that, but basically you have to try to envision the these knitting portions reversed and right-side up....you basically miss the technique being shown. Thanks for presenting a show like this. It is still a valuable addition to the fiber crafter's library.

And here I was hoping that at least episode excerpts would be available on-line... TV is becoming less popular; more and more people are going to the internet for everything now. After all, that's largely how the latest renaissance in knitting started -- the net enabled isolated knitters to reconnect and get out in public together. People will still buy the DVDs for the high-res images and for completion, much the same way that offering free patterns and preview photos encourages magazine sales of Interweave Knits. Any chance of getting at least some highlight or excerpt podcasts up?
on Jul 1, 2008 1:23 AM
I really loved the Celebrity Clutch in Episode 101! I've downloaded and have my yarns all picked out! I just happened upon the show by accident! From reading the comments... I guess I am glad that I live on the "left" coast (aka California).

SuzanneG - we DO get Knitting Daily in Raligh. It's on PBS, but on the higher numbered station (UNCED) - it's on Mondays and I record it on the DVR to watch when I get home from work. If you have TWC digital cable, you get the higher number PBS stations. Those are the only ones with anything good - Knitting Daily, Sewing with Nancy, Martha's Sewing Room (Martha Pullen), Fons & Porter's LOve of Quilting, America Sews... I just love KNitting Daily though - lots of great ideas and inspiration!

I could not find a picture for the Celebrity Clutch so I do not remember which one it was. Was it the one Eunny demonstrated with the cables and the foam board and satin lining? If so, I would really love a picture of that one. If not, where is that pattern available, please. The one Eunny demonstrated. Thank you Sr. Gloriamarie gloriamarie@gmail.com

Hello, I enjoy your show with two notable exceptions. One - the segments are way too short to allow any real learning, and two - you need a camera angle that will allow viewers to see Eunny and these other lightning fast knitters as they stitch. watching them from in front just doesn't do it - we need a camera shot from over their shoulder view. thank you.

It's too hard to find the patterns. I've gone back to the original email & tried it 4 times & can't find the episode that has the pattern for the crocheted short-waisted sweater! Nice idea though.

We've tried to get a pattern for the Orenburg lace shawl. Unfortunately, the sample we received was created by craftsladies in the Ukraine who have memorized them. In future, I'll be sure that everything we display on KnittingDailyTV has an accompanying pattern. FREE Windy Valley Vicuna patterns can be found at http://www.yarnmarket.com/knitting/Windy_Valley_Muskox_Free-614.html You can also use Qiviut or Guanaco for these patterns.

I purchased the DVD series and am enjoying it. My only criticism is that the camera is facing the hosts and guests as they demonstrate a technique. This makes it a bit difficult to understand how to perform the techniques properly. Please consider an "over the shoulder" view in future episodes or having the demonstrator hold the piece in such a manner that the audience can properly see what's happening.

Last week on your program there was a demonstration on how to correct  the uneven rows when knitting  a stripe in the  round.  I missed which show it was and I can't seem to find it . Can anyone advise on which series and show number?
