I'm on TV... Knitting Daily TV! (with a Giveaway!)

Remember back in October when I was hinting at knitting step-outs ALL.THE.TIME, and then went to Ohio for a 36 hour stint?  Well, I was shooting a segment for Knitting Daily TV and now I can share it with you!

I got to Ohio ready to film with a ton of step outs in plastic bags that looked like this....
Then I got my hair and makeup did and the next thing I knew I was on set with Vickie.. (my eyes look a little psycho in this photo... let's just pretend they don't!)
I got to meet Tanis Gray for the first time in person, she is LOVELY....
I "speed" teach the Bulb Cuff from Knockout Knits in my segment, I can't believe we got through all the steps of making it.... I finally brought myself to watch it last night so I could write this post, and I have to say, it's better than I thought it would be!  I was just a little nervous I'd sound like a idiot but Vickie is a total pro, and guided me through each step perfectly......
I used a bead mix from Artbeads that I'm a little bit addicted to now... so fun to just string them on randomly and let them do their own color play....
Here's a little preview for you....

Ready for some details?
  • The episode I am in is 1412... you can purchase it individually here.
  • You can order the entire season (1400) digitally or on DVD here.
  • Check your local listings to find out when KDTV (and my episode) airs here.
     I'm hoping it airs on one of our local stations and we can have a PARTY!
Alrighty time for a giveaway... 
I've got one FULL DVD set of the entire 1400 season of Knitting Daily TV for one of you! To make this extra special I am going to include beads from Artbeads and a Gumball so you can knit your own bulb cuff just like mine!
Just leave a comment below by 11pm (EST) on Jan 25th, don't forget to leave a way to get in touch with you! I randomly choose a winner on the 26th and announce them in my Ravelry group in the news thread and on Facebook.
