Glad to see Vickie is back! Review by Hamcrafter
Rating

Episode 1202 is the 2nd one I have seen of Knitting Daily with Vickie Howell. She is more entertaining when SHE does the knitting, although she has had pretty good guests on. I intend to keep watching mainly because I am glad to see a knitting show back on TV. I agree--not enough shows like this; also agree that the Skype segment should be changed to another knitting project.

Overall lacking in quality Review by Angela
Rating

When I got my copy of series 1200 with Vickie Howell, I was disappointed. The things I do not like are:
Vickie tries to be to "rock n' roll" and says "going rogue" too much. Is this a knitting program or a rock n' roll review.
The "Space to Space" segments are a complete useless flop, blurred, distorted, a total waste of time.Tools of the trade is a waste of time too, it doesn't accomplish anything.
If you expect customers to buy the DVD, and pay $50 bucks for it, give us quality. I would like to see guests that have something new and innovative, new techniques, new yarns and what to do with them, more samples, trunk shows, segments from TNNA shows, etc. Eunny was better, more natural, more intellectual. I have nothing against Vickie, but I feel like I'm watching a kid's program.

Like Vickie Howell Review by kmcla
Rating

I was satisfied with the various episodes in series 1200 and I really have missed Vickie Howell. I do think the skype interviews could be deleted for more knitting time but I think it's such a change from previous episodes with all our favorite guests that it takes a little getting used to. I hope they will do a little more with teaching techniques, camera shots are more important and unique patterns and design features. All in all I will keep watching because there are not enough shows like this.

Not As Good and Informative Review by Barbara L.
Rating

Enjoyed it more when Eunny hosted this show. The 'tools of the trade' lady seems very nervous and the reviews she gives seem incomplete and useless. And the communication with a guest in 'far away places' via Skype(?) - why? Video on the segment is bad.

Also, Vicki often interrupts the guest and I rarely can catch the end of the guest's comments. Vicki just seems too be trying too hard to be 'mod' (not necessarily 'modern') and the video quality lacks in sharpness, clarity and is often too shaky so that I can't focus on what's being demonstrated. Euny's shows' videos were beautiful, clear, and focused on what was being demonstrated without shaking. I've only seen a few of these new ones (trying to give it chance and hoping that it would get better), but I've seen enough to know that I will probably not view any others. When Euny was the host I rarely missed an episode and learned quite a bit although I am an avid, advanced knitter (who also crochets, tats, and cross stitches). Euny's version of the show seemed more 'thought out', professional and organized and kept the show ' on point'. The new version of this show doesn't hold my interest enough to even WANT to learn anything from it.

Too simplistic, not useful Review by Jenifer
Rating

The series with Eunny and the yarn lady (sorry, I forgot her name) is so much better than this. The Skype section is useless. Frankly, Vicky Howell is good on A show, just not this one. She's good with simple and chit chat (sorry Vicky). Can't we get Eunny back?

Disappointed Review by Sandy
Rating

I have the DVD set of every previous season of Knitting Daily but I will not be purchasing series 1200. After watching the first few episodes, there is nothing in the program that I would ever need to watch more than once. I have even taken it off my scheduled DVR recordings. The new format is so simplistic, it's almost insulting. I still watch past episodes from previous seasons when I want to refresh my memory on a technique that is new to me. The space to space segments are poor quality and boring. The tools of the trade segments are useless and the whole format is a huge disappointment. Maybe the producers can make some significant improvements if there is to be a series 1300.

Disappointing Review by Patricia L
Rating

I was surprised when I saw the first episode on my PBS station, and very disappointed.
The SKYPE segments are awful....not well presented, at all.
The knitting tips are so inane , and not useful at all.
I gave this show three viewings to make sure, but sorry. This is just terrible.
Since I will be deleting them from my DVR, I certainly won't be purchasing any.
I will go back and purchase older years, but not this one, and certainly not with Vickie Howell.
AWFUL girls, up your game !!

So disappointed! Review by Sue
Rating

First of all, I seldom write reviews for much of anything. However, in this case I can't keep quiet any longer. I have watched the 1200 series programs that have been broadcast in my area. It in no way compares to the previous series.
I really loved the former series, and thought Eunny Jang, Kristen Omdahl et al. were wonderful! I loved the guests they had on the shows, especially Barry Klein and Laura Bryant.
There is absolutely NO reason for the Skype segments. I would prefer to see the designers interacting with the hosts in person. And while Tannis Gray is probably a very nice person, her segment is particularly useless since she doesn't identify any of the products she 'reviews'.
Thanks for listening.

One Star Because I Won't Be Buying It Review by MaryH
Rating

I catch an occasional episode when it airs on my local PBS station. I am ambivalent about how much I actually learn, but I enjoy the guests. I would love to have the entire season as a download but $39.99? Seriously? That is so overpriced I couldn't enjoy it if it I did purchase it. My price point would be under $10. Sorry KD … you've priced me out of your market.

Terrible season Review by Mary
Rating

I'm sorry I wasted my money on this season (I wish I would have purchased another past season with Eunny et al to add to my collection. This "new" KD is so simplistic, I wouldn't even recommend it for a beginner knitter. Not only is it simple, in many cases it is wrong. In the first episode Vickie asks the designer if she is using a cable cast on because it's a stretchy cast on, and she said yes. All of my techniques books states cable cast ons give a firm edge. Under charity knitting, she recommends sending the military hats made with acrylic yarn. DANGEROUS, as acrylic melts, and will melt into the skin. Also Lisa Schroyer taking credit on her shawl design for the knitted on Icord, which I learned from Elizabeth Zimmerman's book in the early '80's is lame. The blogs on the home page also illustrate the dissatisfaction from my fellow knitters! We watch to learn.

Moderately Interesting but leaves me searching for info too often Review by Nancy
Rating

First, Vickie Howell is a super moderator & even though I don't crochet I don't mind a few tips as there have been occasions when I needed the skill to finish a garment.

I believe the show could be excellent with the following few improvements:
* either drop the tools of the trade segment or start giving out info such as the brand of the item and how to source it. Its format is an inexcusable compromise with your sponsors and a waste of time for your viewers.
* stop the pop-up note "find this (item, pattern, etc on Interweave.com)" I invite you to follow that suggestion to identify the show notes. If you don't have a shownote page you are 10 years behind the cheapes podcast out there. Its not only annoying its the main reason I won't be buying another season.
* I don't think I'm too different from many knitters who would want to see at minimum schematics, the name of the pattern and the name of the yarn used when you demo techniques.

Knitting Daily should be all knitting Review by Beth

Why are you making Knitting Daily, Knitting and Crocheting? I liked last year's Knitting Daily.

Series 1200 has too much jibber-jabber!!!!!! Review by Deanial
Rating

I loved Knitting Daily before this series.What happen?I watched Knitting Daily for the informative techniques.I always learned something.Maybe you should have stopped at series 1100 or changed to Knitting or Crochet Daily.I love Vickie Howell in Knitty Gritty but this is Knitting Daily!!!! I don't want to watch a video phone call (what a time waster) in space to space.Use time wisely.I don't need to see you walk, start next to the guest so they have more time for technique.Stop the unless jibber-jabber and you'll know what I mean.How many times do I have to hear Austin ,Texas.Remember more Technique!!! Also stop sticking extra hands in the knitting shots of the guest, it's distracting.

A couple of problems with this season Review by Rhonda
Rating

I have bought every season so far but not sure I will continue. Although, it is Vickie's first season and I do like her, I might give the show another season to improve. I have a problem with the camera not being completely in focus. Never happened on previous seasons. And I find the 'Tools of the Trade' segment totally useless without the names of the product or yarn so we can look into them further on line. Otherwise, I enjoy the guests who appear to discuss their design or technique and Vickie is very good at interviewing her guests. Just please get a better camera or cameraman to focus for clearer viewing so I won't feel so discombobulated when watching.

Best Season Ever! Review by Barbara
Rating

I LOVE Knitting Daily TV and I LOVE Vickie Howell, so I knew I would LOVE the newest season! And I do!
The format this season just seems to make more sense - each episode covers one subject or technique and I feel that I am really learning a lot about the subject or technique, the yarn that works best, perhaps the history, and maybe some of the details that make it what it is.
Keep it up! I hope Vickie continues as host for a long time!
