Meet the "knitterati" on the new season of Knitting Daily TV!
|Knitting Daily TV crew with guest star Deborah Norville|
A note from Kathleen: I just finished watching the 5th season of Knitting Daily TV, and I won't have to wait much longer for the 6th season!
The star power on this season is amazing! I've read all of the Blossom Street books from author Debbie Macomber (being from Seattle, I get asked more than you think if I shopped at A Good Yarn on Blossom Street!)
Deborah Norville also stopped by the Knitting Daily TV set for a visit. And I've been a fan of Deborah's since she was on the Today Show 20 years ago—knowing she's a knitter (with a new line of yarn!) makes me an even bigger fan.
These fantastic ladies plus a bunch of members of what I like to call "The Knitterati" make this season the best yet.
Show producers Annie Hartman Bakken and Jaime Guthals are fresh off the set of the new season, and they were kind enough to write up a preview for us.
Here they are to give you some more details.
