Saturday, Jan 24, was the first KNITTING DAILY broadcast for Houston PBS. When I first heard about the show, I was so disappointed because it was not available here in Houston TX. Now that it is, I am ecstatic!!!! I taught myself how to knit summer 2006 with my Dad's encouragement all the way. I am continuing to learn and want everything I do to be a "Thank you" to him. He passed away Mar 2007 at age of 93. He believed that no matter what your age you are never too old to learn something new! Thank you for a wonderful show!

Where do I find the needle with the crochet type hook on the end. It was used on Feb 10th to mark work so you didn't have to rip everything out and it was used to sew pieces together. Thank you, Bette

I am brand new at knitting. How do I get started. I want to learn knitting with two knitting needles. I have two knitting needles and a ball of yarn. What should I make? Please help! Lost, need directions!

If your a brand new knitter, wind the yarn once around your finger on your left hand, if your a right hander. Slip the yarn from your finger, 1st finger, onto your needle. Just keep doing that until you get the stitches you need on needle. Than slip the needle to the front and wind around the yarn and slip off the needle. Maybe you can find the way to knit on Lion brand. com. Think they have beginner directions to. And maybe Knitting Daily does to. Check out knitting Daily 1st. If they don't have it, than Lion Brand will for sure. Making a scarf is very easy, so maybe start with a scarf. Practice, practice. Knitting is very easy, once you learn how to put the yarn on the needles. Judy Olson-Mn.

When showing some of the techniques, it would be easier to learn if the camera was over the knitter's shoulder so we were seeing them in the correct orientation instead of backwards. I am fascinated by the variety of themes and skills on the show. Thanks

I turned the program on after it had started and was impressed with Jan Cratz's demo showing how to unravel back to a certain row in a cable and correct it. The demo was very easy to follow and understand what she was showing. Thank you for this. I loved the knitted knitting bag...that's next on my to make list! Pwill54

We finally have your program!! I think your show is so well put together, you get right to the point of interest and not nonsence in between. I have returned to knitting after many years and found all these new helpfull changes in knitting and crocheting. I am with a group of Ladies Knitting & crocheting for charity. Every time I see a change or helpfull hint in knitting, I am pleased to pass it along. I do have a question... I noticed that some ladies do a knit stitch from the front left up into the loop towards the right at the beginning of the row and then change over from the right front towards the left back. I am self taught as a child and I do knit yarn in left hand and I always knit from right front into the stitch towards the back loop. I know when I knit in the round I have a twisted stitch because I'm not doing a purl row. Why would you work in both direction on a knit row? Thank you! Linda

I really have my heart set on making this bag.I am really excited about your program and your web site.I have been knitting for many years. Please e-mail me soon I will check for your reply everyday.
