Watch me not mess up on Knitting Daily TV!


See me in this photo looking all casual and relaxed with the lovely Vickie Howell on the set of Knitting Daily TV? That was just before we filmed my segment for episode 1408, which will be airing next month!

Despite the entire colony of butterflies I had swarming in my stomach, the taping went very smoothly. On the worktable in front of us—which I, remarkably, did not even throw up on at all—you’ll see the Bag! For Things! design from my Kung Fu Knits book. On the show, I demonstrate how to do a few of the techniques you need for the bag, such as working a knitted cast on in the middle of a round and a simple method for sewing in a zipper.

I don’t have an exact air date yet, but I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, you can either click here to find out how to watch Knitting Daily TV in your area (in most parts of the US, the show airs on a PBS station) or click here to order the entire season on DVD.

DMK Podcast, Episode 18: Fish Out of Water


Ever feel like a fish out of water? Watch me draw a loose and utterly ridiculous parallel between myself and Anne of Green Gables in this episode, where I detail my adventures taping a segment for Knitting Daily TV and traveling to Rhinebeck for the New York Sheep and Wool Festival. I also review the Green Gables Shawl Kit.

Today’s technique segment shares some tips for how to sew in a zipper.

DMK Podcast Episode 17: Pull Yourself Together



Fall is always crazy-busy when you work in the yarn industry. In this episode, I’m talking about gearing myself up (logistically and psychologically!) for the next week. I’ve got a book signing, a TV taping, and Rhinebeck coming up—all in the next seven days. Wheeee!

Today’s technique segment shows how to wind a center-pull ball when you don’t have a ball winder—and how to make a butterfly-type yarn bobbin.
