TV to craft by

I got stuck upstairs with really terrible craft TV on PBS the past couple of Saturdays. 

C’mon, PBS, why do you have to do this? 

I read Gertie’s sewing blog almost daily, and I have to think PBS would be super lucky to have her. 

Because their idea of crafty TV – which comes on the Create channel Saturdays especially – consists of this Knit and Crochet Today.  

Hosted by this, um, woman

It’s so frustrating. All that educational TV time and nothing crafty — save really traditional quilting — to learn. The projects are frumpy, the ‘talent’ is really awkward and the shows are just a waste of time, which of course I tune back to every Saturday while futzing.  

Could they make knitting or crocheting look dumber? Really?!
