Knitty Gritty run-down

I taped an episode yesterday and would like to give a quick review:

First off I don't have any pictures because my camera's batteries died at a very bad time. The host, Vickie Howell let me take a picture with her using her camera and gave me permission to grab the shot off of her blog. I haven't figured out how or when to do this, but I certainly will.

I woke up at 5am to make the 7am call time. When I got there, I met the "knitsters" right away - Anne, Jeremiah and Jef. All very nice and cool and fun - all helped put me at ease as well. I admit to being rather nervous.

The taping took a while due to some technical issues as well as waiting for me to finish knitting rows and such - all in all about four hours. The production team was very nice and they let me show off my homespun at the end too.

Guess when it airs? Around this time NEXT YEAR! I'll be sure to mention it another thousand times in between now and then.

Thank you to all the folks who encouraged me and gave me advice and support! As a small fish in a giant ocean, I was made to feel a bit more confident with your kindness.

Neat! That sounds so exciting!

Next year? Just don't let anyone forget. Maybe by next year, I'll get diy channel. Poor me.

That's awesome! Is it torture knowing that you'll have to wait a year to see it?

Hey, Star!
You were awesome. It's too bad that you and Vickie were so far away from us during the taping 'cause we were having a blast just dishing in the background. :) But I love your patterns and your homespun yarn was gorgeous! Congratulations!
(How can I get some?)

And I'm totally frustrated at having to wait a year to hear what you said. You were awesome, though, and you looked very calm in your kick-ass pink and grey argyle socks. (We were very covetous of them).

Thanks all - and Jeremiah you are the greatest! SOoooo sweet!

It's beyond torture to know it will be a year before I can see it. It makes the whole thing seem very fake.
