More on saving Knitty Gritty

I have made it my mission to save this show. Not only is it the best knitting show but Vickie really rocks as its hostess.
I have been sending Scripps / DIY an e-mail every few days. I figure that by this time they know my e-mail by heart now.
I have been asking all to post the link to the petition on their sites as well.
The craftychica has been posting about this as well. She has agreed to post the link on her blog.
I have contacted the Yarn Harlot too. I am waiting to hear from her.
So if you are reading this please add the link to your blog or My Space.
The Ravelry Group is doing a knit in. They are knitting squares to send to Scripps / DIY.

I really hope all this works. Time will tell.

I have not watched DIY in about a month now. Not sure if I will keep the channel. I will cancel it if there is no Knitty Gritty.

Here is the link again.

Ninja Turtle Sweater

I am making a Ninja Turtle sweater for my nephew . He loves everything Superhero. I have the front almost done and now he wants me to stop making it for a Batman sweater.

Go figure. Four - year -olds !!!

I will finish this Ninja Turtle sweater first.

Sock Knitting

I have started two more pair of socks . One in Moda Dea Sassy Stripes , color Lucky and one in Lionbrand Magic Stripes , color Sea Blue. There is just something about knitting socks that I like and I think they wear much better than store bought socks. A very portable project. This is my van knitting, which means I knit them only in the van while waiting for the boys , at lights , ect.

Saving Knitty Gritty

Diy has moved our favorite knitting show to 5:00 A.M. here . I hear on the knitting boards that some are getting it at 2:00 A.M.
Does DIY think we do not sleep ???
Not everyone has a recorder.
They did this all in the name of renovation shows for men.
I phoned Scripps / DIY and made a complaint this past week. This is the number I used
Phone: 865.694.2700
I was told they would pass my complaint on to programming.

I have come up with a whole day of programming for them. Starting at 7:00 A.M. to 5:30 P.M.
This is what my day would look like.

Clay ------ polymerclay & ceramic
Doll making
Flower arranging
Household cleaning tips -- stain removal , ect
Jewelery making
Painting ------- One Stroke & Bob Ross
Quilting --- ( Many out there )
Rug making
Spinning & weaving
Tattering ( I always wanted to learn )
Woodworking for women
Yoga & such

So with all this , why is it that they need to put home renovations on every day ???
We could have a WOMAN'S day !!
I sent this over to DIY. We will see if anything gets done.

So much for my rant, now I feel better !!

Heart Knitting

Fickle posted this on DIY message board.

Sorry the pictures are not that great.

This is a really cool pattern. I started it in red using size 6 needles. I think for the next one , I will go up to a size 8 or 9. I think it needs to be done on larger needles to make the hearts bigger.

I will also add a boarder as well.

Boot Socks

Here is my boot socks from a pattern I revised from DIY. These were my last project for 2007. This is a great pattern to use worstered weight yarn. I have posted other socks from this pattern before. I made the leg portion longer. Mine are 9 inches long.

I am now working on a ninja turtle sweater for my nephew and I still need to finish my Erin sweater .
Looking foward to a wonderful new year knitting !!
