A couple of old friends from Knitty Gritty and I have been working on this spoof video for a while, now. It’s finally done, and uploaded. I hope it gives you a little Friday afternoon laugh…or at the very least, a smirk.
Without further ado, here’s the untrue, not really hollywood story of a knitter’s rise, fall and ultimate crafty plateau.
Have a great weekend! And remember, I’m there for you, in (knitting) good times and bad. 😉
Disclaimer: The people and events portrayed in this video may or may not be based on fact. More than likely though, it’s the result of a knitting host, art director and producer, missing hanging out on set together where debauchery almost always ensued. Thank you.
It’s hard to believe it’s already been almost a year since Vickie’s Wednesday’s Snood pattern came out. We’re excited, though, to be able to revisit it with our new kits! Snap to it! (Link in bio, or go to YarnYAY.com)...
I am devastated by the loss of @hillcountryweavers founder, Susanne Middlebrooks.
I wrote a longer tribute to her on my blog and Facebook (links in bio). In short, though, she had been sick for a long time but had been a master at not letting the illness get in the way of her living. So, it was often unimaginable that she wouldn't be with us for longer. Last June during an industry convention in Chicago when Susanne came over to the bar booth I was sitting at and plopped herself next to me to chat, I had no idea that it would be the last time I'd get to see her. I'm so thankful though, that when we parted ways to go back to our respective meetings, it was with a hug. Rest in purls, my friend....
When I came across this Knitting Needle Patent greeting card by @patentpress , I couldn’t resist selecting it as one of the items for the YarnYAY! September box! (Link in @vickiehowell bio or got to YarnYAY.com)
What looks like part circular knitting needle, part Tunisian crochet hook is illustrated as the patent drawing for flexible knitting needles. This greeting card memorializes the creation of tools that we stitchers can now, not do without!...
