For Cary and MollyAnn, I found the little flower pattern in the Juliet scarf pattern. I, too, had to search for it because it wasn't clear where to find it. I wish we could see these episodes here in Australia. I did write to find out if the region (ours is 4) of the DVDs would work and was told probably not. So thank you for publishing some of the patterns. They look wonderful and I look forward to knitting the scarf first.

There is no watching here in Wyoming; not with Wyoming PBS nor the Denver PBS station. I do feel fortunate to be able to purchase the season without having to move to Rapid City, South Dakota, in order to watch 4:00 AM. Wow, selected cities means just that. But again, one can watch, learn, and download the entire season and be extremely happy. But it would be nice if this market were served as along with those selected, because shows like this are for many knitters in this area the only way we stay current outside of magazines. Thanks

It's SO sad that so many fans are unable to view the program due to their local PBS stations not carrying it. This is usually because they have no sponsor willing to fund the program in the local market. LADIES and GENTS, contact your LYSs and ask them to sponsor the program! I'm so very fortunate that my LYS, Natural Stitches, is sponsoring the program here in Pittsburgh, PA on WQED. Goodness knows, we need MORE fiber programing and LESS home improvement on the air. After all, how many times can you afford to remodel, improve and/or landscape compared to how many fiber projects one is able to construct? Daily Knitting, thank you SO much for providing your fans and fiber fanatics with quality and MUCH needed programing ~ Kudos!

The show is not in Alabama either! I was thinking that it was because we don't need bulky sweaters and mittens here, but that must be not it because some posters who can't get the show are "northern neighbors" ! I wish there was a knitting show that didn't stress outerwear--I am so not into that! Southern Pam

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 was able to watch my first program today. I would suggest that knitting demonstrations be done over the shoulder or from above. Too difficult to see what is going on with the camera in front.

on Jul 1, 2008 1:21 AM
I agree with LouiseK - the camera angles are awkward during demos. Over the shoulder would be best. Congrats on the show!
skooter wrote
on Jul 1, 2008 1:21 AM
Camera angles a plus, AS IF "YOU" WERE WORKING and looking down on the project is always best for the viewer. THIS IS REAL IMPORTANT to those of us fortunate enough to view your show. PLEASE, don't talk over one another, the viewer is trying to make out conversations, and with both talking at the same time, technical information is lost. May I suggest, it would be nice for both parties demonstrating on live TV to review the show they just filmed, you will then notice, that either, sentences aren't completed, or just too much talking over one another. This is most noticeable with Coats and Clark rep, but not exclusive. I don't wish to sound rude, but it is just so hard to make out what is being said, let alone view. I love the show, but lots of improvements needed, information wonderful, but presentation could be more viewer friendly.

I, too, live in Utah and caught your show by chance. Really enjoyed it. I appreciate and agree with the constructive criticism offered by a few other viewers and their comments reflect my ideas as well. I enjoyed making a little rosette from the pattern included with the Juliet Scarf. I attached it to a cap I just made for a young mother struggling with cancer. The rosette, with a few crystals in the center, added so much spice to the cap and she was thrilled with it. Thanks for a great program, an informative website and the free patterns. Keep it going. It's well worth it. Sincerely, Ymana Johnson

Not only is there no photo or picture/schematic/drawing of the Swirl Berret, there is no gauge given, or finished dimensions. This really frustrated me, as I wanted to substitute a different yarn. I posted about this on Knitting Daily Forum but no one responded. Eventually I just dove in and started a hat. After three attempts to swatch and get something of a gauge and make adjustments accordingly, the hat still turned out too big and sloppy for my head. Please don't say, "ask Fiesta Yarns about it, it's their pattern." Can't you just post some errata/corrections/ additions? It doesn't help that Berret is spelled incorrectly, It's b-e-r-e-t. I'm not really a complainer/whiner, just frustrated. please forgive

In the rosette for the Juliet Scarf, on row 2, it says to do a pattern then repeat 9 times. This would be a total of 10 repeats. This leaves me with 0 stitches, but it says 32 sts. rem. Have I done something wrong? I am ready for the first short row, but all of my stitches are on one needle, I do not have 32 remaining stitches.

Columbus, OH seems to be a good knitting market -- we have a number of well-stocked yarn shops, yet no one carries your show here either. I'll keep trying with the PBS station since knitting (at least in my mind) is vastly different from quilting. I'm not convinced that interest and skill sets always transfer from one to the other as the local programmers seems to think.

For those looking for the Rosettes Pattern. Go Straight up this page and download the Juliet Scarf. the Instructions are there on the scarf pattern. I too think we should put a bit of pressure on the TV Channels to carry more instructional and educational shows like these, as the world is missing a great chance to educate our youth and all to keep these crafts alive and growing. I too do not and cannot receive these shows in Southern Ontario. Keep up the good work.

Any chance of your network approaching a UK distributor as I would love to see your show. We have plenty of cookery, DIY and watercolour/painting shows but we have nothing that covers knitting, crochet or needlework. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hope to see you in the not too distant future. Regards Jacalyn

I am very disappointed about not being able to find a pattern that your TV show said we could get off your website. Why do you have such a difficult website to use?

I downloaded the pattern for the beret, but what is it supposed to look like? Amazingly, the pattern includes no picture. I can't watch the TV show, and can't afford to buy each DVD. I would never start making a pattern without a sense of what I'm making should look like. If you're going to offer free patterns, at least include a picture so they're actually useful.

SharW -- Let me know if I can help you convince the local PBS station. Yarnmarket is located in Columbus (Pickerington, actually) and we'd love our shoppers to see it. (Some added weight: The TKGA is in Zanesville and the TNNA's BIG Conference occurs in Columbus, OH each June, drawing knitters, vendors and retailers from all over the US.) Feel free to drop me an email at deborah@yarnmarket.com if you'd like to work together on this.

When we installed our digital converter box, I noticed the show listed recently on the local public tv station here in the Detroit area for the digital broadcast. BTW, if you haven't gotten your converter box, hurry as February 17 is coming up fast. Check out the government web site at www.DTVTransition.org

Found your show, flipping channels today. Enjoyed it very much and have gone ahead and recorded the future shows on Satudays for the next three weeks, and will continue to do so every time I watch so I can stay ahead. I am in No. Kentucky, near Cincinnati. I found it interesting how you can combine your yarns and knit with telephone size needles (just kidding)to make things.

Good afternoon I enjoy your show very much and watch from Ottawa, Canada. I would like to get the pattern for the gauzy shawl which was shown on the "judy" in episode 103, "Amazing Lace". It would be perfect for my daughter's wedding. How would I go about getting it? I have emailed the yarn website but don't know the name of the pattern or the yarn which was used. Thanks for your help and a wonderful program. Sincerely Joy

It's aired in my area, but only if I get cable. Which I can't, since they won't run it down my road. I did buy the 100 series, and loved it. I hope to buy the rest as they come out.

Our local station just aired this episode.  Is the pattern for the pink shawl at the beginning of the show available anywhere?  I've found the yarn on Yarn Market.com, but you've given no clues about the pattern.

What a treat it is to find your production now being offered in our area!  It is interesting, informative and inspirational.  Thank you.

I just discovered your show in PBS in my area.  I'm in Lambertville, MI but I get the Toledo, OH PBS station and the Bowling Green, OH PBS station.  I love your show, so helpful.  I'm now pulling up the old shows on my PC.  keep up the good work.
