Knit and Crochet Now, part 3

Me and Kristin Nicholas as she gets ready for her taping. Kristin is actually on half of the episodes (that's alot of air time!)
Here's a bunch of us in one photo. Seated, is the incomparable, Candi Jensen, the producer of the show. I really don't think y'all need a reminder of who Candi Jensen is, but in case you need your memory jiggled of all of her amazing books, look here. Let's just say when I type in "Candi Jensen" on Amazon books there are 37 results! To the right, in the green sweater is Susan Levin, who you may have heard on recent episodes of Getting Loopy with Mary Beth Temple. Susan is also an author and wrote Crochet Your Way and ColorSense to name a few. Crochet your Way is particularly helpful if you are a Lefty as it has illustrations for both the right and left handed crocheter.

Then, of course, I am with Drew Emborsky and Mary Jane Hall. See the last two day's posts for their links. :)

Look at ME! I'm knitting! On the biggest darn needles I have ever seen. I was knitting FOR the show! ME! KNITTING! How cool is that? Now, You'll just have to watch the season and see if you can spot the finished project in a segment. (really, this was kind of a community project, I only had time for about a dozen rows before I had to pass it along to Candi and Susan).

Here's the set of the show with some cameras. For my interview, I sat in the right corner of that sofa.

Me and Brett Bara, host of the show. She is so funny and such a great host. She knows her knit and crochet and she stays so calm on camera. I can't wait to see the season on air. I really had a good time, can you tell? LOL. I had to go back through this post and take out most of the exclamation points so that you wouldn't think that I was totally out of control :)
