Has anyone seen this show... It's new here (in Toledo). I don't think that DIY could have made a worse knitting show if the actually tried. :fingerwag:

I can't understand the host (with her strong French accent), the guests on the show say that they "have been knitting for many years", but they can't even Cast-On or Purl, the camera angles are horrable, and the projects are pathetic.

...ICK :crying: ICK :crying: ICK :crying: ....

Thank goodness DIY has Knitty Gritty .

I saw it on the diy website but I couldn't find it either so I thought they took it off the air but forgot to take it off the website :lol:

I saw one episode.. the one with um... whatsername.. Deanna Troy from Star Trek TNG. The fact that she was a knitter was the most interesting thing of the show.

Yeah, I'm not so pleased with this show. Edith is very hard to understand to me, glad I'm not the only one.

I think the stuff the knitters "had no idea" about is all canned, badly I might add.

This show doesn't hold a candle to KG whatsoever!!!

And for such a high-end shop, why does it look like a dump?!?

Ooh! This recorded on my TiVo right after Knitty Gritty (which I really like a lot), and I immediately cancelled all future recording of Knit One Purl Two.

The one I had seen, the french lady was criticizing a girl for knitting backwards, but from what I can tell (I'm a beginner, but I've watched most of the videos on this site) she was doing the continental knitting method, yet they told her she was knitting wrong.

I just did not like it. I'll stick with the quirky Knitty Gritty show.

Ok I watched it two days and now its not showing up again when I do a search for it LOL..

The angles were horrible I couldn't see what she was doing kept saying moveeee your thumb!! LOL I thought it was hectic too with everyone talking at once although I liked seeing what celebs knit that was the best part.. Saw an actress from Will and Grace and Tracy Gold... LOL
