Deeply Embarrassing Secret: I Watch the Bachelor Franchise

I basically justify my actions with this Onion article: “Woman Takes Short Half-Hour Break From Being Feminist to Enjoy TV Show.”

Even worse, friends? I consume media about the Bachelor franchise like…

The feminist podcast “Here to Make Friends” that makes me feel less dirty about it.

I also read Sharleen Joynt’s blog about the show. Her fashion recaps inspired me to start this blog. Especially during JoJo’s season with all the sweaters!

I have a serious addiction and, until now, only my husband knew.

I know, it’s tough going from Penny Dreadful to this but – cute sweaters are cute damn sweaters.

Last week I caught Danielle M. wearing a stripey sweater (and so did Sharleen!)

It reminded me of a sweater from JoJo’s season that I’ve been thinking about making for myself for a long time.

I’d like to make a version a little more boxy and lot less cleavage…because I’m not starring on a reality TV show.


Pattern Inspiration:

I’ll just be hiding over here, awaiting your deserved judgement.

And furiously taking notes on the dates in Wisconsin this week with so much knitwear inspiration! I love when they go to cold locations.


My name is Monica Rodriguez and I can’t stop fidgeting with yarn. I live in Albuquerque, NM with my husband. We belong to two terriers who manage to cuddle us just enough to keep us from revolting.

Let me know what you think!
