It's been a busy week here at TanisKnits. On Sunday I flew out to Ohio to film my third season of Knitting Daily TV with Vickie Howell! I've always enjoyed working on Knitting Daily TV as it gives you a chance to meet new designers, hang out with designers you admire, learn new things, see old friends and work on a big project together. My old segment, "Tools of the Trade" was switched up this year and became "Stitch Sampler," where I teach viewers interesting stitches. I love teaching and this gives me a chance to go beyond the classroom walls and right into your living room. Getting a chance to be Vickie's cohost (and I'm in every episode) is a wonderful thing. Here are a few highlights!
I also released a new pattern for autumn this week, the Hampton Cowl. Knit in Dragonfly Fiber's Super Traveler yarn with 1 hank of each color, this cowl is designed to be an ideal beginner Fair Isle pattern as well as a quick knit. I chose a variegated and a solid, but any colors would work! I always love the combination of corrugated ribbing and Fair Isle with a bulky yarn and it's so satisfying to knit because to goes so fast. My friend Louisa from Knitting Daily TV was kind enough to be my model and we ran out into the wilds of Ohio between takes of the show for our photo shoot.
