From Burbank

Just a quick note to prove that I am indeed alive and well. I flew down this morning, to LA’s cutest little airport. In fact, I could walk to it, as it sits just across the street from my hotel and can be viewed from my window.

I got most of my knitting done for the show while enjoying Thanksgiving at the in-laws up in Eugene, OR. However, selfish new car owner that I am, I sacrificed quality knitting time by driving there and back myself, while Mr. Man enjoyed the dog on his lap.

The “hero” bag was felted at work on Monday. I don’t love it… it’s bigger than the last one. But that’s just the magical/random nature of felting. I’d rather be knitting than fussing with hot water in the washing machine. My little sister will love it nonetheless.

Sonya, my wonderful producer, rehearsed me all afternoon. I’m feeling confident about the shoot. Call is 7:00 a.m. tomorrow. Now I just have to finish 40+ rows of a mini-version of the bag. Woo woo. Call that another Xmas gift.

Mr. Yarn Ball Boogie is shooting his show after mine, so I got to meet him today. Now that we’ve had face-time, I’ll have to stop lurking and drop him some comment love. He even shipped in his own entourage from Chicago, an inspiration and someone I’ve longed to meet since I started a-knittin’. His comment on my last post told me he’s reading, which makes me want to write more often, more cleverly and more betterly. I’ll see if he allows me to capture him on the otherside of the lens.

Too bad we have this TV show to do… I’d rather hang out and chat with them and Sonya all day!

    Hey there! I followed the link from Vickie’s blog and wanted to say hey. I’m doing my show on the 11th and Sonya is my producer too. I can’t wait to meet her in person because she just rocks. I really need to get my arse in gear and get all of my yarn organized for step-outs. Good luck this morning!

    I can’t wait to see the show! I hope that you are having fun! So… is Vickie as fun in person?
