Whoa, Nellie!

Holy cow, guys. Thank you so much for the amazing response to the sticker request. To make sure though that everyone gets through, from now on, please send your request to my assistant, Ginger: ginger@vickiehowell.com. If you’ve already contacted me, please DON’T RE-SEND. We’ve totally gotcha covered, yo. ๐Ÿ˜‰

On the KNITTY GRITTY front, some of you were asking about new episodes. I talked a little bit about new episodes in one of my comment responses but in case you missed it, here’s the scoop: Last October we shot 39 more episodes (basically 3 more seasons worth.) That’s the good news. The bad news is that the network is thinking about not airing them until this fall which basically means there’d be almost a full year of re-runs. Apparently, Knitty Gritty is a strong show for them and so they’re holding it for a big Craft push they’re doing in October. I would love for them to air at least one of the new seasons before the fall push, but I’m not the one who they need to hear that from. Sooooo, if y’all are interested in “More KG A.S.A.P.” (feel free to chant that phrase, it has a nice ring to it ;-)), then it’d be ever so awesome if you’d send DIY an e-mail letting them know how you feel about the show (unless of course you think it sucks then please, keep that to yourself–this host has feelings too, ya know!). Let them know how often you watch and that you’re hoping that new ones will air soon.
Here’s the link to DIY Viewer Services, where you can contact the network directly. For some weird reason, Knitty Gritty isn’t listed (they’re working on fixing that), so just click on “other” in the drop down list. I *heart* you muchly for taking the time to show some love. Thanks!

Ok, I have 4 boys under the age of 6 at the house right now and they seem to be planning some form of revolt. I gotta go. Wish me luck!

xo, Vickie
