First, Knit and Crochet Now, is the new name of the Knit and Crochet Today Show, on in most of the major markets in the US. This Emmy-nominated show has adjusted it's name and now it is known as Knit and Crochet Now. If you don't get the show, you can order a DVD of past seasons here. (I have both season 1 and season 2!) I have the DVD's because it comes with all the patterns. While I'm not as likely to use the crochet patterns, I'm learning so much from the knit ones and the demonstrations of those patterns by knit experts Kristin Nicholas and Maggie Pace.
So, the first day, we arrived at the Detroit Public Television Studios in Wixom, MI.I'm standing here with crochet author, Mary Jane Hall, the author of Positively Crochet and Crochet that Fits.
This is my step-mother and friend, Glenda and I as we await my turn in the make-up chair.
Here is the Emmy winning make-up artist, Amanie, making magic while Brett Bara, author of Crochet Today magazine and host of the show, looks on awaiting her turn.
Amanie approves of the job she did erasing the black circles under my eyes! Isn't she gorgeous? I'm going to confirm the spelling of her name later today. I apologize if I have gotten it wrong. The sweater I'm wearing is an easy crochet design made of Louet Riverstone that I'm going to sell as a PDF on Ravelry before Thanksgiving (that's the plan!). Stay tuned for more photos and highlights from my first experience in television!
