Knitty Gritty Dish

The underground railroad that is the Austin Craft Mafia’s preferred method of communication (very similar to a game of telephone, except with texts), got word to me last night that Knitty Gritty was going to be mentioned on the Style Network’s new show, The Dish. ย Of course it was to make fun of the nerdiness of knitting but as I snorted and pushed up myย proverbialย glasses, I couldn’t help but be thrilled. ย After all as they say, there’s no such thing as bad press! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย 

Besides, I’m always thrilled when: a.) the show gets noticed (even if it’s posthumously); b.) the brilliant Cat Bordhi (clip they used was from the Mobius show) gets a shout out; c.) Naughty Secretary Club jewelry gets screen time (the necklace and ring I’m wearing); and d.) clips are used of me from episodes shot during my “skinny stage”.
ย 


Seriously though, if you’re a fan of ย E!’s The Soup (the likely muse for this show), you may dig The Dish, too. ย The host, Danielle Fishel (who you might remember from her pre-teen days on Boy Meets World) adds a ton of sass to her sarcasm; a combo that makes her downright adorable. ย I think as part of host to host relations, I should bring her over to the knitting dark side! ๐Ÿ˜‰
The episode airs again I think, tonight @ 9 and several times throughout the week. ย 
xo, Vickie

    My husband was flipping channels over the weekend, and we happened to catch the show just in time to see this. I was not happy at first, but I do think that the host needs to learn to knit.

    I saw this and my first reaction was “DO NOT make fun of Vicki!” But it did give me a chuckle and I know that some people just don’t “GET” is knitters!

    Their loss!

    Saw it yesterday. I love a good laugh but I didn’t laugh once during this show.
    She has no idea the master Cat is.
    But knitty gritty and you did get air time which is good.
