Did you see Knitty Gritty show today?
I don't know if it was a new episode but I never saw it before. They showed some pretty knit pillows!!

I have a new guest room and have been wanting to knit a decorative pillow for the bed. Today on the show I saw two wonderful examples of what I can do. I plan to make the "Tuxedo Pillow", the ruffle pillow first. Then the other was a reverse applique pillow. Both techniques they showed were really wonderful even for an advanced beginner.

I think the rerverse applique one would be pretty with fabric showing thru the knitting on top also....lots of great ideas today!!

I hope you get to watch the show. See below for the link.

Yes, I saw it! I like the tuxedo pillow, too. I may knit it, too...I will use 1 ruffle down the middle. I'm so happy that we finally have new shows again

A show? Like on TV? About knitting?? Did I understand that correctly? I've never heard of it... would anyone be kind enough to let me know when and where it comes on?

When are the new shows on? I usually watch the afternoon episode, but they're still showing repeats. I decided today, to watch the morning episode. It was also a repeat. I'm on Central time, and it comes on DIY at 10:30am, and 1:00pm. Is there another time it's on? I'm obviously missing something.

yeah my DVR got it right. On mine I can set it to record only new shows or new shows and repeats or only repeats. SO I have it set to new shows and repeats just in case. So if anyone wants a copy I make a VCR copy and send it to you (if you don't have cable or don't believe in TV but wanna watch this show. I can even edit out the commericals!)

I don't think I'll make the ruffle pillow (too foofy) but I like the other one. I dont't have a sewing machine though. It's such a great idea for using color though.

We have a DVR and have been trying to figure out how to set up the VCR or a DVD burner with it! So it IS possible, huh.. :thinking:
