View Full Version : I will be modeling knitted clothes on TV

10-20-2007, 02:17 PM
But I think you'll only be able to see me if you are in Chicago. It's this Monday on ABC-7 news. They're interviewing Iris Schreier for her new book Lacy Little Knits
And there will be 3 models modeling her clothes. The interview will be live and is scheduled for 11:45 am but they said it could be moved around to any time in the 11-12 hour. The whole thing is only supposed to last 3.5-4 minutes, so I'm sure I'll only be on for like 5 seconds. Don't know what I'll be wearing yet, either. But it's still cool and I'll still get to see the pretty clothes in person and wear them and meet the author.

So if you live in the Chicago area, look out for me!

Too cool! I wish I could see it too - but alas, I'm not in Chicago. (actually, I'm glad I'm not in Chicago ;), but I am sorry I can't see it)

I hope you have fun! Let us know how it goes!

If they show any of it on their website, send us a link! I'd love to see the segment!

10-20-2007, 05:56 PM

10-20-2007, 06:37 PM
That's so cool, have fun!

Do you model for a living?

Today CHicago, tomorrow the world!

Cool! Stardom here you come! :thumbsup:

10-21-2007, 10:25 AM
Thanks, you guys. I'm not sure if even I'll be able to see it. Have to pull my VCR out of storage and see if it still works and if I can record it.

That's so cool, have fun!

Do you model for a living?

:teehee: Thank you, but no. I'm a bit too soft all around and about 1/2 foot too short. But then again I guess people are expanding their ideas of "model".

What a great opportunity and experience.
Our local TV channels have web sites with news video. Maybe you could ask if it's going to be posted on their website and give us the link.

Hey that's so awesome! That book has some cute patterns. Hope we'll be able to see you online someplace. Have a good time!

10-21-2007, 11:25 AM
Oh how exciting! I'd love to be able to see that! I was born and raised in Chicago, but haven't lived there for many years. Heck even if Iwas still there, I'd probably be working right at that time, but I'm sure we'll be able to at least catch clips of it on the internet, yay!

10-21-2007, 09:01 PM
That's wonderful. I wish I could see it too. I wish I was "little" so I could wear those "little knits".:aww:

10-22-2007, 03:24 PM
Very cool! How did it go? What did you get to wear?

10-22-2007, 05:09 PM
I just went to the news channels webpage, and they have a video player right on the main page. http://abclocal.go.com/wls/front It was the first video in the player, called Lacy Little Knits.

Yesterday I went to IRis S.'s workshop at Knitch in Atlanta.
She showed a few knitted samples of the items from the book, which was included in the cost of the workshop. She also showed us a new yarn which has small beads and small sequins which was really pretty; she modeled a top which used the beaded/sequined yarn all around the neckline. It was really pretty.

10-22-2007, 05:14 PM
yeah i did too, the outfit she modeled was very nice i want the pattern

10-22-2007, 05:21 PM
Hi Nikki,
Beautiful outfit and beautiful you...what a cool opportunity for you...what are you going to be knitting out of her book? Did you get an autographed copy?

You ROCKED that outfit girlfriend...And the knitting wasn't bad either!!!:yay:

10-22-2007, 09:00 PM
Thank you! I'm so giddy. I was nervous. It seems I blink a lot when I'm nervous. But isn't the skirt gorgeous?! See, it's what I always say, don't hate on the booty! Everything is made with expensive stuff. Maybe I can get the yarn for something for xmas. It was really fun, though. :woot:

10-22-2007, 10:07 PM
You looked mahvelous, dahling! Baby's got back!:teehee:

10-22-2007, 10:14 PM

I can't think of anything else to say, but I am happy for you. :hug:

10-22-2007, 10:14 PM

You were great! If I could pull off wearing that like you did, I would LOVE that for myself! WTG!!!!

10-24-2007, 05:32 PM
Wow, it must have been such a fun experience! I figured you'd be a natural since reading about your finished Coachella last summer. :yay:


10-25-2007, 07:55 PM
Congratulations! You did a wonderful job, and just looked beautiful!
They almost didn't let you come on stage. If they hadn't, I would have been all, "Hey now....it's MY turn to model!!" :teehee:

10-25-2007, 08:30 PM
:cheering::cheering: You looked great! You didn't look nervous at all. I must say though, those 2 reporters were absolutely clueless about knitting :teehee:

10-26-2007, 09:53 PM
Nikki, you looked GREAT!!!! Yay, you!!! :cheering: What a great opportunity! That skirt and sweater are just so pretty!! :inlove:
