Loomtasticly Loominating!

Thank you so much to everyone who’s thrown out possible episode ideas so far. I’ve added a bunch to the pitch list over the past couple of days and that’s due in large part to your help as well as those who responded to me on MySpace. I really appreciate all of the responses and would love if you’d keep any additional suggestions flowing! (Not only do I love hearing what you have to say, but reading your posts gives me an excuse to procrastinate even more than I already am on working on the project I have due next month. ;-)) Knitty Gritty won’t actually start pre-production for at least another 3 weeks so up until then I’ll continue compiling a list to hand over to the producers once they’re ready to go. I should give a little disclaimer though that although I do have a lot of creative involvement with most seasons of the show, I in no way have final say as to who the guests are or what the ultimate episode content is. To my Loomlicious Lovies: FYI, I assure you that your call for loom shows has been heard loud and clear. I can’t make any promises, but I will say that I’ve added the topic to my list, you’ve totally peeked my interest about the technique and I’ll do what I can to make sure that your collective voice is heard. I actually had no idea that that many needleless knitters watched the show. Very cool! πŸ™‚

Oh, I also wanted to address the crochet thing. Although we did shoot a show last year (I’m not sure yet though, when it’s scheduled to air) with Candi Jensen that incorporated crocheted edgings with knitted pieces, any completely crochet-focused shows are saved for Uncommon Threads. I know, drag, but Allison’s show is awesome as is she, so it’s all good. I’m hoping though that after Catwalk Crochet is finished, if I bat my eyelashes and smile pretty, they’ll let me be come on as a guest. πŸ˜‰

Having to do with nothing, I did some leg weight action at the gym today for the first time since oh, probably 1994. I’m already hurting.

Ok, off to my son’s flag football practice.

Happy trails,

    Hi Vickie,

    I love the show! In future episodes, I’d love to see some felted bowls or other handy household object projects. I’d also love a show about how to design your own projects from start to finish.

    In terms of guests, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, the yarn harlot herself, would be oodles of fun.

    I hate to say this but I have never seen your show. I did hear a while back that you MIGHT put some shows on TV about looming. Oh, boy was I excited! I sure hope you do and I promiss you that I’d be one of the many watching very time it cames on.

    Please let us know when and if you do a show on it.

    Thank-you so much,

    Dora Renee’ Wilkerson

    I had a thought.. what about a show on converting crochet patterns in knit and/or vice versa. There’s a few books on the subject. The one that comes to mind is by Donna Scott. I can’t place the exact title, but it’s been out a while. Just an idea.

    Oh and when is you catwalk crochet book due out?
