If someone told me three years ago, when I first started knitting, that in 2007 I would be on MTV talkning about knitting, I wouldn't have stopped laughing. Well, I guess sometimes unexpected things happen. Anyway, the Stitch n' Bitch Stockholm co-ordinator, Tanja, was contacted my MTV Sweden
last week because they wanted a couple of knitters to talk about the SnB group and knitting in general on their morning show "Mycket mer än müsli
" (Much more than müsli). So Tanja asked me if I would do it, and I thought it would be fun, so why not?
The show will air on Friday the 20th, and on Fridays they always have like a fashion "theme" to the program so two thirds of the very stylish Swedish fashion designers at Dagmar
were invited too. They do a lot of fabulous knitwear, it was great meeting them.
I've never been to a television studio before, and the whole thing is a bit surreal and I can confess I felt a bit out of place and old amongst all those young, hip people. But they were all very nice.
The funniest part of the whole thing was that Swedish pop star Darin
(who, like so many other these days it seems, came to fame by participating in the talent show "Idol" here in Sweden) was also invited to the show. They programme hosts had set up a number of tasks he had to accomplish, one of which being KNITTING! So I had to teach Darin how to knit... Poor dear, he probably thought it was terribly boring, but I'll grant him that he did make an honest attempt!
Blogger and editor of new fashion magazine Modette
, Eleonore, is the fashion commentator on the programme, and she has posted some photos on her blog
from the recording, and to the left there is a photo of some of my knits and WIP's along with the lovely needle case Myra
made for my birthday!
Darin and two thirds of Dagmar
So if you want to see me talk a bit about knitting and teach Darin how to knit, tune in:
Time: Friday April 20th 07:30-09:00 (rerun at 14:30) Swedish time, of course...
Channel: MTV Sweden

Inte en dag för sent. Den där Darin måste ju ha någon sysselsättning när han slutar försöka sjunga.
