Knitting Daily TV Turns 10!

I note from Kathleen: It's hard to believe another season of Knitting Daily TV is here! But it is, and I'm thankful. Each episode is so full of interesting techniques, patterns, and fun personalities. If you want to learn how to knit, or if you want some new tips and tricks, or if you just enjoy welcoming Eunny, Kristin, and Clara back into your home, wait no longer!

Here's Associate Producer Annie Bakken to tell you what's to come in series ten of Knitting Daily TV.

Clara Parkes and Eunny are in the knitting lab to talk about softspun yarns on episode 1005's Yarn Spotlight.

Behind the Scenes, Immersed in Yarn

As a knitter, there's nothing better than to be surrounded by the yummy yarns on the set of Knitting Daily TV.

We've taped the tenth season of the show, and I'm proud to say we get better and better with each series. Airing this January on Public Television, series 1000 of Knitting Daily TV is sure to delight our fans and hopefully intrigue new knitters to join us. Plus, if you're a yarn lover, tune in to see first-hand some of the newest yarns on the market.

Lucky Number 13!

We have thirteen new episodes, which means thirteen more quick tips and thirteen more getting-started segments with host Eunny Jang. We paid attention to what our fans wanted on our Facebook page, and we're diving more into sweater construction, lace knitting, knitted socks, and new design orientated segments. Viewers will learn how to tailor their knitwear, how to add drape using the right yarn and stitches, and even how to add small design elements that make all the difference.

Clara Parkes is also back on this season of Knitting Daily TV with thirteen more yarn spotlights, where all yarn lovers (crocheters, weavers, spinners too!) can enjoy her scientific, informative take on the newest yarns and how to best put these fibers to the test in your knitting. Learn the difference between handpainted and hand-dyed, woolen and worsted, and mercerized versus non-mercerized cotton. Plus, have you heard of possum yarns?!

Introducing Knit-Alongs!

Also brand-new are two knit-alongs with Kristin Omdahl. Mixed into our usual how-to designer segments, you can knit alongside Kristin to make the Agua Rios Vest and the Wheeled Lace Shawl.

     Kristin Omdahl knits the Wheeled Lace Shawl on this season's knitalong.

Both of these patterns are geared towards women, for beginning to intermediate knitters. They both look like elaborate knits, but are actually easy to master with Kristin's step-by-step approach. And, they're classic, ageless garments that we hope a wide audience of knitters will enjoy.

As always, favorite guests Laura Bryant and Barry Klein are also back for more knitting and crochet know-how with slip-stitch knitting, tencel yarns, and Tunisian crochet. This season also welcomes crochet designer Robyn Chachula with crocheted jewelry and edging advice.

I hope you'll tune into the show and enjoy watching it as much as I love being a part of it. And as always, please feel free to leave comments as to what you like, love, or want to see more (or less!) of on Knitting Daily TV. We're listening!
