Knitting Daily TV: Great Beginnings!


Here in Austin, TX the new season of Knitting Daily TV with Vickie Howell begins tomorrow on PBS (check your local listings for when it airs in you ‘hood!) The first episode, appropriately enough, focuses on Great Beginningsinteresting ways to begin your next knitting project. Here’s the gist of what you can expect:

Studio Guests:
Designer/Teacher, Patty Lyons  (read about the segment in her own words here.), & Designer, Stephannie Tallent.

Virtual Guest: Author of Homebodies & Nomads, Cirilia Rose

Projects/Techniques: Choosing the right yarn for your project, using the right technique to create the fabric you want, and a Provisional cast-on.

Stitch Sampler: Co-host, Tanis Gray shows the Vertical Slit Cable.

Loose Ends: Quick tip for working this Glam Stripes triangle scarf from tip-to-tip.

My favorite moment or thing I learned from the episode: Patty Lyon’s tutorial of the Portuguese Purl, kind of blew my mind with its effectiveness. Here’s a behind-the-scenes shot of her teaching KDTV executive, Karin Strom the method (check out how the yarn’s wrapped behind her neck!)
