Knitty Gritty

Great news for the public image of knitting: the DIY network is going to begin airing a knitting show, titled Knitty Gritty, and hosted by a member of the Austin Craft Mafia, specifically, Vickie Howell of Ruby Goes Retro.

Despite the near obligatory reminder that "this ain't your grandma's knitting show", I think that the producer actually get the idea, and that this won't be another stupid sop to "hip knitting" (such as R2, Rowan's horrific entry in this field).

I know that there are many forces at work in producing a TV show, so I'll try not to be disappointed if it's not my dream-show. But for now, all signs are positive, and my hopes are high.

Three cheers for cool knitters!

Hey sweetie!

This is your first official "ass kicking reminder" (AKR) to get your shop open!


Sorry I've been out of touch since returning - life is nuts. Email me because I seem to have lost YOUR email, sweetie!

Cool camera 'phone - woohoo!
