Virginia Native on Knitty Gritty Show!

Expert knitter and Virginia-born Ann McCauley has just filmed an episode for Knitty Gritty. The episode is called 'Delightful Details' and will first air on February 16th on HGTV at 11:00 Eastern time. Ann's knitting is truly beautiful -- full of cables and ribs in delicate yarns, many of them natural colors, too. Her book, The Pleasures of Knitting: Timeless Feminine Sweaters, features beautiful sweaters that I imagine in the Blue Faced Leicester yarns. She signed a copy for me two years ago when she visited the Bedford VA shop, Yarn Theory, for a book signing.

The Pleasures of Knitting received 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon.com's rating! Lovely book, lovely lady! ... and from Virginia, too!

Ann will be teaching for Yarn Over in the Minneapolis/St.Paul area over the weekend of April 21, 2007. If you are going to Yarn Over, stop by and say hello.
