The "Twisted-V Pullover" segment prompted me to join knittingdailytv on-line. I enjoy the show, and am already a subscriber to Interweave's knitting magazine. Also, I'm a big fan of Ann Budd's books & will now look for "Simple Style" from Interweave. Thanks for the great show--I hope PBS continues airing "Knitting Daily". SandyKS from Arvada, Colorado

The purple sweater, called "Tilted Duster" can be found at the knittingdaily on line store. Copy and paste the link to get to it http://shop.interweave.com/Tilted-Duster-P198C27.aspx If that doesn't work, then just go to shop.interweave. com and type in titled duster in the search box. You can download it as a PDF after you pay for it.

Ladies, there is a free Open Source Program called Open Office. You may use it with Firefox by downloading it from Mozilla.com. When you have a PDF to save simply save it in Open Office as an HTML doc. You will be very happy as pics and text as well as charts will be found there. There are many free programs you may use, check it out! This pattern is beautiful! As I can not get the TV show in my area of Florida either, I am glad to be on the email list and watch the show online! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

The "Tilted Duster" can also be found in the IK FEB 2007 issue. I believe it is pictured on the cover.

I would love knitting daily TV show to come to Rochester. I contaced WXXI which is our public TV station and they said that they already had a knitting show "Knit & Chrochet" It is good but not the quality of Knitting Daily. Do you have any idea when it may come to Rochester, NY or even Buffalo, NY. Thank you, Marion

I am SO grateful that you include a road range of sizes! I am petite and usually I need to modify patterns (which, if complex, can take a lot of figuring!) so this is a wonderful bonus with your patterns.

I'm in South Jersey and don't get Knitting Daily either. We have very limited shows on knitting, would also be nice to have crochet, and they are on at weird hours. We now have a DVR but so far it has only recorded two shows in several weeks. I mean how many times can you watch them over and over and over again. Help us to get more shows. Thanks. : )

I would just LOVE to do socks with theyarn that makes a pattern as you knit. It is sooo expensive though. I see it in Mary Maxim cat. but the price and then add on $7 or $8 ship. & hand., it is cost prohibitive. Is there any place in the Chicago area that sells these yarns so I could save the s & h costs? It usually works out to over $10 a pair if I were to order it by mail. Thank you for any assistance quiltist5@earthlink.net

I was unable to download the V-Neck Pullover and am quite disappointed. Is there another way of offering the PDF format? Apparently Internet Explorer doesn't work on my system. I have Firefox and that didn't work either. Can I get the pattern mailed to me? Help!

Wonderful demonstration on twisted rib stitches. Very clear - verbally and visually. I often twist stitches for fun looks, and am really pleased to see that the designer of this sweater used twisted stitches for a beautifully classic (timeless) sweater. I am a big fan of Ann Budd - her books are inspiring and easy to follow. Thank you again Knitting Daily (Sandi & Eunny) ! Betty BJ

We don't get any craft shows here in Las Vegas. I guess gambling is more important. Can you see if a cable network could carry Knitting Daily for those of us who can't get it? I really don't want to pay such a high price for something I haven't seen before.

I am in southwestern Ontario and do not get to see this show but I look forward to seeing captions on the net.Your show is very informative and I have learned some new techniques that I will be applying to my projects.Keep up the great work.(sigh) I sure wish I could get to see the full show.I am in awe at how quickly Eunny can knit and am making a feeble attempt in trying her method.

Love the Twisted V. I would also like to give my thanks to Eunny for the left-handed knitting demonstration; will be trying it out later today in my knitting-hour to see if I can improve my speed!

If you could use all light colored yarns in your demonstrations it would be easier to see them clearly.

I love your shows and your demos a very wonderful. The only problem I am having (sorry to say) is that when they are showing the stitches of the product Shay is interrupting them and then to me it gets confusing and I kind of get lost.

I like the purple duster, but it is the mauve sweater to the left of that one that has my fingers itching to make it. Does anyone know the name of that pattern and where I can find it? I love this show! Saw my first episode just last week and was instantly hooked.

I'm very happy that i now have on my pc, knitting daily tv. I really like the show. I would l like to have a show on a knitted cardigan, regular knitted cardigan. Right now i'm finishing up a, tailored with a twist cardigan. It's taking me way to long to knit up. I just want to make a garder stitch cardigan, which would be alot faster. My mom taught me how to knit when i was about 7-60's now. My grandmom Odessa taught me how to crochet & needle point & embroidery.

Thanks for a great show.

I am trying to find a pattern for an afghan that Drew Emborsky demonstrated on the show number 200B.  I would love to make it.  It is a version of a ripple and striped afghan.
