Well folks, it’s time for the last (new) Knitty Gritty hoorah. Our one-hour specia we shot last year, Knitty Gritty Knitsters, finally airs this Thursday, July 3rd at 9:30amPT/11:30amCT/12:30pmET!
Whether you gather a group at your house for a little screening brunch, or Tivo it to watch on your own later, I hope you’ll tune in because the special benefits one of my favorite charity organizations, Warm Up America.
I traveled the country collecting squares (that would be pieced together to form blankets) from Knitsters everywhere from Charleston, South Carolina to Los Angeles, California. We chatted with fellow stitchers ranging from 20-something indie musicians who knit in between gigs, to great-grandmothers who can’t remember a time in their lives when they weren’t holding a pair of needles. I shot the knit with Tori Spelling and Dean Mc Dermott’s at their wine country Bed & Breakfast, tagged the streets of Houston with hand-knit yarn cozies, ate gourmet goodies and supply shopped with my friend Lisa Loeb, and hit the ground skating with the Naptown Roller Girls (who all knit before derby bouts).
I had a blast working on this project and hope you’ll enjoy seeing the range of people in our country who have one, craftastic thing in common: a love for the knit.
As always–knit loud, knit often!
P.S. Gone for the holiday weekend already? Not to worry, here’s the re-air schedule:
