Here I am just before going in to shoot episode #247 – 3 of a Kind. Practicing one more time, did I get it down, humm.. check, double check!
This my completed bag for episode #247 – 3 of a Kind. The cables didn’t actually intertwine like a true Celtic cable, I was in a rush and once things got crazy my zigs were zagging and the cables didn’t turn out how I totally wanted them, but I guess OK.
Here is Amie, me, and Drew showing off our finished bags. We all had the same basic pattern (that Amie designed) but we’ve each changed the look totally. Amie’s bag has short handles and a fantastic Hawaiian motif, I used surface crochet to make cables, and Drew used sequins to jazz it up. I have to say, this was really fun to see how each of us developed a unique approach to the basic bag.I plan to add to this post tomorrow with an update on how the episode went, I'm sure a critique is in order, (as the last episode I thought I was a total geek, I'm not a movie star, I'm just a simple at-home-Mom in Minnesota trying to break into the crochet design business.)

The show aired this morning. I set my alarm for 5:55am got my DVD burner ready and it wouldn't record with the new disks we bought, I quickly grabed another disc. I didn't get the intro taped, oh well. It is really surreal to watch yourself on TV. Here are a few screen graps.
She is quick, clever, and has such a fantastic way of making you feel at ease.
