The program, with its new projects and new techniques, is bursting at the seams this year. Get ready for your "to make" list to be overloaded! As for techniques, there are so many fantastic ones that I am all ready with my hook and needles to learn along with our experts. They will be talking about lifelines, getting gauge, weaving in ends, working mitered corners, seaming, using charts, edgings and so much more. This season will definitely get your crafting skills to the next level!

I hope these photos have also gotten you excited to see season eight of Knit and Crochet Now!, which will air this fall on PBS. Be sure to check your local station for when they will begin airing the show. The Knit and Crochet Now! new season will hit the website on Sept. 7, 2017, and DVDs of the show will be available on Sept. 12.
