This Week on Crafty TV

Date: Friday, March 6th
Time: 6:30am ET
Episode: AlterKnitive!
Cutting edge knitwear designer John Brinegar (Psst! ย He’s also a contributing designer to my upcoming book, Pop Goes Crochet) shares techniques for taking your knitting from drab to fab in order to really make a personal statement. Techniques include experimental knitting with drop stitches, embellishing with chains and safety pins, and unusual seaming methods. John then tops it all off by demonstrating a bold hat that is a piece of art in and of itself, which incorporates many of these techniques.

xo, Vickie

    Is there any way to catch these things online? Every week I read what fab things are happening, but as an English grrl in Austria (which the knitting revolution seems to have passed by, by the way) I can’t tune in in the conventional manner.

    Great blog, keeps me inspired! Thanks, Jennie
