Where's Eunny Jang? I can't knit without Eunny!
I wonder too, where she is. I miss her! Eunny come back, ASAP.
Eunny is working for Craftsy now.
I agree - I miss Eunny! I hope she is wildly successful at craftsy, but I don't see how that can beat a weekly TV show and editorship of that wonderful Interweave Knits magazine. I feel lost without her!
:( I miss Eunny. How will I knit now.She is awesome.
I miss her also, although I also like Vicki. My main complaint is that it seems like the new shows don't show the how-to stitching as much as Eunny would show how to create a stitch up close. It seems that they do more talking about it and not enough showing how to make the stitch or pattern. That's just my opinion.
I agree with the comment about the new show. Euny did a great job of making sure you could see exactly what she was doing. They need more close up shots on the new show.
I really loved Eunny’s manner and her teaching, and I’m
finding it very difficult to get used to Vicki.
Eunny was diplomatic and able to control each segment in a
non-dominating yet skillful way. Vicki
seems a bit strident and out of touch with her guests. On one segment she ordered the guest to knit
on camera, even though the guest mentioned being nervous about it and had really
shaky hands. It was hard for me to watch this kind of insensitivity.
There is a vast difference between Eunny’s skill and
knowledge and Vicki’s. Eunny understood
knitting inside and out. She is a master
knitter in every sense of the word. The segments
we get now are more like show and tell than teaching—except when Vicki invites
excellent guests on the show, which has happened a couple of times. The stranded colorwork segment and the one on
the jabot showed great techniques that I was happy to learn. I’m looking forward to the brioche segment
coming up too.
I don’t like the video chats either. The quality of the picture is terrible
(Interweave should help Vicki with that by providing MUCH better equipment),
and Vicki dominates the chat with questions and comments, so they’re not really
informative. Instead of “meeting” the guest, we just hear the guest answer a
lot of questions. Asking a ton of
questions is not the same as interviewing someone. An interview is meant to ELICIT information
and make the interviewee comfortable enough to start volunteering interesting
information on her own.
When Eunny was on the program, I never missed a show. I started getting ready 5 minutes early, and
then I planted myself in front of the TV set so I wouldn’t miss a second of
it. Now I tune in for the first few
minutes to see if there is anything worth watching; sometimes I keep watching
and other times I don’t. Some shows I just
don’t bother to watch at all because I can tell from the preview that they’re
too elementary. I do have to say that
the other people on the new show are more interesting than before. I like Tanis Gray’s segment, for example, and
I always used to take a break during the fiber/yarn segment on the old show.
The real question is why Interweave ever let Eunny leave in
the first place. I’m guessing it was about
money and that Interweave does not get the difference between dollars and
value. Eunny’s value to the show and its
popularity was worth whatever she cost, in my opinion, and I’m assuming it was
I totally agree with everything you said. I used to never miss an episode when Eunny was the host. I do not like Vicki Howell's style and will probably not watch the program again. I really miss that. Did Eunny leave this show on her own or did they get rid of her? What is she doing now?
Eunny is now teaching classes on Craftsy.com. She has 2 classes on there so far, and you have to purchase them to watch. She's probably doing other things too, but I don't know how to find out since she doesn't have a current web site (or at least I can't find it) where we can find out about her. She might be on Facebook or Twitter; I haven't checked yet. If so, maybe we could see how to get more of her teaching elsewhere.
Sorry for the double post. I don't know why Eunny left. I haven't heard anyone say. I'm just guessing that she asked for more money and they refused, but maybe someone else knows how it actually occurred.
Wow, I haven't been back for quite some time and I am surprised to read that Eunny is no longer here.
And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen. Ex. 35:25
ZassZ, you've been missed. Welcome back!
I live in the Washington DC area where we haven't gotten the last season of the Eunny Jang-KDTV (or the new format) so I'm really far behind on the progrem. I've started purchasing the season, just to fill in. Good to know that Eunny is over at Craftsy.
I MISS EUNNY!! Knitting daily with Vicki is boring now and not at all worthwhile for me to watch. Vicki can not hold a candle to the caliber of knitter Eunny was. I hope Knitting Daily will not settle for this and will look for a better replacement for Eunny. I am SO DISAPPOINTED!
Why do we miss Eunny Jang so much, She was SWEET, and a very Good Teacher. I LOVED to watch Her. She inspired me to Knit, I looked forward to See Her Kniting Daily Show.This New Show is Boooo..ring. I rather Clean House. As they say "All Good Things will End some Day" and it Did.
