I am still crocheting the black and purple scarf for P. I hope to be finished soon. I also made a list of yarn I need to order next week. I have a doctor’s appointment next week. It will be nice to get out of this apartment. I went out once in February. It is hard for me to believe that I used to be able go outside everyday. I am thankful to have something to look forward to. However, I wish I was going somewhere else. If I feel well enough, I might go out to a restaurant with a few friends to celebrate my birthday in May.
In yesterday’s blog post, I wrote about a crocheting book I like. Today, I want to mention a television show I like. Knit and Crochet Now is one of my favorite craft programs. It is shown weekly through a local PBS station. I have been watching it for a couple of years. I don’t know if any new shows have been taped for this year. Repeat programs have been aired for the past several months.
The program is about 30 minutes. Each program features a knitting project and a crocheting project. Instructions for making an afghan square are also shown. All patterns are available on the Knit and Crochet Now website. Interviews with well-known people in knit and crochet fields are also shown. I first heard about Etsy and Ravelry from this program.
Knitting Daily is another program I like. It is also shown through a PBS station. Several years, ago HGTV station had a show called Knitty Gritty hosted by Vickie Howell. I wish that there were more shows on television about crocheting and knitting.
