Create and Craft
On the 12th of January Kari-Helene and Tracy made the journey to Peterborough, another city ticked off the map for Norwegian girl Kari-Helene. The reason for our visit? We had been invited to appear on the Create and Craft shopping channel. This is a new venture for the Ideal World Shopping Television Company, to develop an unusual collecting of knitting and yarn suppliers so that their customers can tune in for new ideas not available on the high street. Both Kari-Helene and Tracy were very nervous and excited at the same time, but with the help of Nigel, their presenter on the day, they somehow managed to get through the experience without any major slip ups.
Our friend, Michael, observed that when Kari-Helene demonstrated her knitting techniques, her hands were steady as a rock, but when Tracy pointed out the beneficial attributes of an alpaca fleece, her hands shook! Tracy firmly states this is because her vitamin B levels were low and had nothing to do with nerves!
Afterwards, Kari-Helene has realised she called mattress stitch blanket stitch, but hey – they both have to do with bedding! If anyone has been confused about this, she profoundly apologises. You can find out how to do mattress stitch here!
Another dear friend, Abdul, kindly took a few screenshots for us to share! We are now booked for two more shows in February and this time we will take some of our own photos too!
