I have heard great things about the show "Knitty Gritty" but I do not have ( and don't WANT to have) cable tv. Does anyone know if the episodes are on DVD yet or do they plan to put them out to DVD? Anything download-able?
Is this show worth all the hype?

As an alternative-are there any good websites that have knitting visual aids or videos that are helpful for learning more complicated techniques?

I just started watching Knitty Gritty.

www.diynetwork.com - then find the show Knitty Gritty and yes they have the stuff from each episode.

I love the show - I set an alarm for 3 am (I live in Colorado) to wake up and watch it then go right back to bed.

I started watching Knitty Gritty about a year ago, and I think it really depends on your level of experience.  They have some great guests and make some really cool projects, but often the techniques they show aren't that difficult, as they probably want to be able to appeal to a broad base of knitters and not just the experts.  When I first started watching it I learned a lot from it, but if you've had a few years of good knitting experience you probably are familiar with most techniques they show.  That being said, I love the show and would recommend watching it, but if you're looking for a good way to learn techniques I would agree, knittinghelp.com is the way to go.  Plus there you can pick what you watch, watch it repeatedly, and knit along.  Before i discovered that, i had more than one frantic episode watching Knitty Gritty, realizing they were doing something i wanted to learn and running to get something to practice on while they did it.  it was a pretty bad scene Wink...
