Passing the Gravy

Hi Knitters,
I've been working away the hours and watching movies and tv as I go. Here is one dvd set that I have watched all the way through and I thought you might be interested in it. Knittingdaily tv is a series put together by the talented fiber geniuses at Interweave, Eunny Jang, Kim Werker, and Liz Gipson and the show host, Shay Pendray. 

The set has 4 dvds and has over 5 hours of knitting/crocheting/weaving packed shows. There are featured designers including Michele Rose Orne, Leigh Radford, Wendy Bernard, Louisa Harding and Robin Melanson to name a few. I enjoyed seeing these talented designers actually talking and knitting and alive, very fun. There is so much information included in the series that you are sure to learn something new by watching. It is well done.

Anyway, this is a short and sweet entry to say I am passing the gravy on to you! I've already watched all of the shows and I don't think I will watch them again. I thought maybe one of you would like to watch these fantastic knitters in action. Here's what you need to do:

Write me a comment on this post and not an anonymous comment. Leave your name or your blogging name or some sort of identifying element.

That's it. I'm having another giveaway! 

I'm not saying when the contest is over so get your comment in quick. I will announce the winner, which will be randomly selected, on my next post. The winner will then need to contact me within a couple of days via email to send me their mailing address. If I don't hear from the winner I will select a new one. Please keep the entries to U.S. and Canada mailing addresses to keep shipping costs down.

Go for it, Knitters. You will love watching these shows as much as I did.
best, susie

Can't wait to see what you are knitting next.

lilibethsgarden said...

Funny, I was reading and thinking, man I'd love to watch those...and now you're giving them away!

You're a generous person! I'm sure whoever gets them will enjoy it immensely, and then perhaps pass them on once again. :o)

Kelly said...

I saw this advertised in Interweave, at least I think it was interweave, looks very interesting.
You ARE the giveaway queen :)

How sweet of you to have such nice giveaways! I would love the videos since it was by this method I taught myself to knit! I'm always eager to learn new techniques & stitches! Thank you Susan!

Ohhh, I'd love to win that! I subscribe to their emails as well, and they are always full of valuable information.
I love your blog, Susan, and all of your generous giveaways! :o)

That DVD set looks great...I am always looking for some good stuff to watch for the winter. Yes, I am already thinking about the snow here in Chicago :-0

Great idea to "recycle" the DVDs to others. Sounds interesting.

Too cool! Heck, I didn't even know they had a show. Way to be on the ball, Jess. :D

Anyway, I'd love to see them. You are such a sweetie!

Pooch said...

What a great idea! I'd enjoy watching the DVD, then pass it along to someone else on this list. It could be a fun see-n-share activity! Thanks to you for sharing!

Margery Noel said...

Dear Susie,

You are amazing! Perhaps the winner needs to agree to send the DVD along to another knitter once the shows are "digested"--that way we would pass along the gravy :)

Hey there Susie,

Cool give-away (as always)...I'm actually leaving town on Thursday morning...so hopefully you'll do your random drawing tomorrow... ;-)

Fall is in the air and I've been looking for some new shows to watch while I'm knitting up a storm.

Take care and thanks for all the continued knitted inspiration!!!

I've been hoping my PBS station will run this one. Thanks for the opportunity!

Melissa said...

Thanks for the offer! I have been wanting to order this DVD set but am on a budget (which, sadly, extends to yarn as well). Fingers crossed that I'm the lucky one to get it!

PS. Thank you for sharing the wealth with the rest of us. :)

I've been hoping my PBS station will run this program. I'm so interested in the show. Thanks for the opportunity.

I have been wondering about that series. I just got a portable DVD player so it would be nice to watch it after the baby is asleep.

You always have the best give aways!

Hi Susie, Thanks for the chance to win another great prize. I had been hoping to see this series on our local Toronto/Buffalo PBS station, but no go. I want to thank you for the cheerful, upbeat and fun entries you make to the blogging world. I am always happy to see what you have discovered or are creating on your own or with your children. I don't know how you do it all, but I appreciate your perspective. Kim in Georgetown, ON

Pass the gravy, please - my local station does not carry this show! I asked my mom to tape it for me for Christmas, but she doesn't get it, either.

Deb said...

I'd love to see them too--if only to see and hear the designers...but like many others, I'm one of those whose station doesn't carry this!

The dvds sound really useful. I'm always interested in learning something new!

Jani said...

Thanks, as always, for your generosity! I've been thinking about these since I heard about them on the Ready Set Knit podcast, but, like you, I probably wouldn't watch them more than once, so . . . this is a great opportunity to share the 'gravy'!

Melissa said...

oh dear LORD i want that!

leslie said...

I would love them... I am a beginning knitter and have tackled a few of your projects (I own both books) but have had problems with some of the different stitch techniques so hopefully if I'm lucky and win this it will help me on the road to becoming a knitting master!

mlc2boys said...

I would love to see this...why doesn't one of Madison's 5 digital PBS stations get this show?!

This sounds like a great set of DVDs! This will definitely get the creativity wheels spinning.

FiberGeek said...

I was thinking about ordering these DVD's because our local PBS station refuses to run any shows that are knitting or sewing or crafting related. If I win them I will in turn pass them on to other knitters for their enjoyment, once I have viewed them.

lindagerig said...

I love looking at your blog each day or so. I have made several of your patterns and have three books of yours. Linda Gerig

Those look like great DVDs. I was just reading something about this set on another site today also. Guess I have as good a chance as any to win.

Hi, I just have to say I love you blog & patterns! After 13 years we still have no children of our own but I have bought your books to knit the projects for my "box of dreams" and someday hope to use! It would be so cool to win this dvd as our local channel doesn't carry the program. We could have a knit & watch party with my knitting friends!
Keep up the great work & can't wait to see the patterns you come out with next! You are so thoughtful to pass this along to another knitter, who ever it may be!
