Ok, loved the Stitches West segment, so where are the patterns that were referenced? They talked about several easy and intermediate, where do we get the patterns and what type of yarns were used. This is one major problem I have had with this program: you don't give enough info. on the knitting, if you show photo's on your site, you will mention what Shay and the guests were wearing? (not a knitted product) and other misc. "Shay" info. Also you do not photograph the knitting examples from behind or above the person. I realize this was originally a needle point program, but in order for the knitter to see what is to be done or a specific stitch, we must see it from our point of view not "front" on. This might be ok for needle work on canvas but not for the knitter. Hopefully you will be improving? As you seem to be one of the few programs run in our area I am thankful for what you are doing, but frustrated you don't follow thorugh with more detailed resources on your web site. Knitty Gritty had the "knitty cam" so I know the technology is out there. Also get in closer with the work. Also, some of the Lion Brand segments are a bit too chatty for my taste. I am glad you are bringing in different designers, etc., but these segments seem rushed whereas the Lion Brand segments drone on. I realize they are one of your sponsors, but perhaps they might bring on a different representative once in a while? Thanks for what you are doing, I know the marriage with Shay Pendray will be a good one, just anxious for more of what is out there. Francie Was

After watching the show for several years now I do enjoy the diverse segments and agree with Francie that some of the Lion brand bits do go on. However I do not have cable so my selections for this type of programing are limted. I am needlework starved. I record the programs I do get, to watch when I have time. I am pleading with PBS to get more of this type of program. Now that I have finished sobbing on your shoulder, I really do love the show SJB
