I’m back from L.A., wrapped for the 1-hour Knitty Gritty special–yay! It was great seeing Lisa and I’m looking forward to Dave and I hanging out with her again, when we’re all in New York next month.
We spent the first half of the shoot shopping for snacks at this great gourmet market in Venice, where we picked up tons of different cheeses and crackers to snack on while we knit. The 2nd shoot took place at this killer yarn shop, A Mano (also in Venice), that’s co-owned by my friend Shannita Williams-Alleyne who was one of the original SNB-LA members when I started the group in 2001, and took it over when I moved to Austin. I was so thrilled to see how well she’s doing for herself. So cool and totally deserved. She’s good peeps. See her post about the day on their blog.
Oh, before I forget, I just got word that DIY nixed the Knitty Gritty marathon (aka the Knit In), 2008 in favor of a bathroom renovation they’re calling, the Toilet Bowl. Soooo, I know I told a lot of people that the KG special would air on Superbowl Sunday but that’s apparently no longer the case. I’ll keep you posted on any new developments but in the meantime, if you’re looking for more Knitty Gritty love and want to tell the network(s) about it, here’s where you can send your comments:
