NYC Trip Highlights
Loomy Q&A's a secret: Invitation to Knitty Gritty as guest designer!!! Woot!

I have a secret to tell....ssshhh...are you ready, come closer: little me has been invited to be a guest designer on the Knitty Gritty show!!! I am at the edge of my seat, sweating and hyperventilating! I have known for a few days but I couldn't tell anyone--it was just too "unreal" that they accepted me and my little looms to come to the studio. I will be meeting the superb Vickie, that is if I don't faint and end in a comma at the hospital from hitting my head on the floor!


{Knitting Looms}

I will be demonstrating loom knitting and a really cool fair isle project. I am flying out at the beginning of December to tape the show which will air sometime next year (probably in the fall).

Here, you can watch the little video I prepared as a mini-demo about me and me looms...don't laugh, I had to film it all on my own, while the kids kept knocking on the door (the video was somewhat like my interview for the producer--talk about feeling the heat!!).

I am so nervous...I have a few days to calm my nerves and stop squealing from excitement. This is such a huge thing for us loom knitters, our craft will be featured in such an important show: in the words of Neil Armstrong adapted to knitting looms: One small step for me, one giant leap for the loom knitting community.
