Alex and I spent a good part of our weekend watching previews of the new Knitting Daily TV show that will soon be airing on PBS. It's really well done and is chock full of information about yarns, knitting, crocheting and designs.
We appear on a bunch of episodes. When I say "we" I mean "me." Alex made me go on the show even though I hate being in front of a camera so much that I didn't even have a photographer at my wedding. (Alex didn't mind. He didn't want any evidence that could later be used against him in court.)
Anyway, we're really excited about the debut of the show. But now that I've seen myself on TV I have to reconcile myself to the fact that:
1. Yes, I should have shed one or two pounds before the shoot. The camera adds 15 pounds even those the techie guys at the studio told me it's the curvature of the TV screen that does it and with my flat-screen TV I'll look my regular weight. Ha!
2. The human nose actually does continue to grow throughout your life.
3. There are certain colors I shouldn't wear.
4. I really do use the word "lovely" a lot.
I'm now getting prepared for Knitting Daily TV Part Deux. And do you know the first thing I've done to prepare myself? No. I haven't gone on a diet. I've invited Jan to replace me on most of the episodes!
