Are you kidding me?  First of all this show drags............its boring.  But, who in their right mind would make a poncho that looks like their grandmother's afghan?  What the heck was she thinking?  Its ugly.  Where is Euni?  Please bring her back now!  This host has some really funky designs that are just not anything anyone would really want to wear, I have taken all her book out of the library, way too funky and not even trendy, not mainstream at all.  What about the lady on YouTube "Very Pink Knits" was she even considered to host?  You would have had a goldmine with her!

I too think the designs are too out there. I can't understand what she says especially in the skype segments. I have stored most prior shows on my DVR for reference, but have deleted both of the new shows for lack of needed content.

I've been enjoying the new format, myself, and enjoy the fresh designs we're seeing. I suspect that the Skype segments mean that they don't have to wait for the big conventions to interview their guests and is no doubt cheaper...I like the variety of guests and don't mind sacrificing a bit of video quality to hear from fiber-folk we might not get to otherwise.

(To each his own, but I love that poncho!)

Would  like the patter for the OTHER swing tunic featured on in this show, but having trouble finding it on the Trendsetter site. SIGH.  Not loving this host, but perhaps it is because she seems to be openly hitting on the female guests. OR was that just ME?

This show sucked lemons before. I tried several times but it was so boring and I didn't learn a single thing, because you could never see anything and they knitted so fast you couldn't make it out, plus they talked so freaking low that it sounded like mumbling. Vickie Howell is amazing, I finally saw someone crochet at a speed and camera shot that a beginner or someone interested in starting would like to see, mainly me. When showing the blocking method it was shown up close and showed more than once for a nice change. Keep up the great job.

Yikes. I've never fast-forwarded through an episode so much before because why go over something everyone already knows TWICE. That could have been an extra instruction or segment! Also, ICK to the Skype with Hollaknits, hearing her voice on TV was disturbing. Some people and phrases are better left OFF AIR. I don't care if Vicki and Allison are best crafty friends forever. I almost VOMITED. I will no longer be DVR'ing this tv show - I'm not learning a thing, it's become a waste of my time. I'm so beyond disappointed that more information is not covered in replacement of some of the pointless conversation that has nothing to do with knitting. :(

Because I'm persistent and really wanted to find it, I managed to turn up the other tunic on Barry Klein's segment. (Hey! Anyone notice his name is misspelled in the description?!?)  It's available on the Trendsetter website under Pattern Series 4702 - the Ballerina Pullover.
