I met Carla on Ravelry and I was immediately excited by her blog, Tiny.Angry.Crafter. I used to call theater productions I produced and directed One Tiny Woman Productions, so I related immediately! Carla’s blog shows off her fabulous fashion sense and provides interesting insights into vintage knitting and sewing. Let’s get to know Carla better, shall we? […]
This post contains an affiliate link for Knit Picks. I love Jane the Virgin. When I saw Gina Rodriguez win that Golden Globe in 2015, I was elated! She was my next America Ferrera. (Don’t worry, America, I still love you and will watch everything you’re in. Ugly Betty FOREVER!) I love telenovelas, and since I […]
I’ve added a new “Ravelry Guide” to the menu of Knit’s All Folks! This resource will be helpful for anyone new to Ravelry. Ravelry has so much great and helpful information, it can be completely overwhelming to a novice. In fact, Ravelry was so overwhelming to me, I didn’t use it much for the first six months I […]
There are a lot of diverse fiber folk – despite that moment when people look at you like you’re in a zoo for doing something wacky, like knitting in public. Interweave Knits, a knitting magazine with generally fantastic and awesome patterns, recently included this quote on inclusiveness in the preview of their 2017 Spring magazine, the […]
I was recently on vacation in New York City, and my fabulous best friend, Demi, was wondering the city with me. She was kind enough to drop into a local yarn store with me and one thing led to another…suddenly she had needles and yarn in her hands. I was talking her through her first knit stitches, and she looked at me, eyes wide, and said these magical words- “I can see how this would be really addictive.” She said the next time we spend some time together she would like some more knitting lessons. She also asked that I recommend for her some beginners tools. To start, all you really need are needles and yarn.
On HBO’s Divorce, Sarah Jessica Parker wears a fabulous chunky knit hat in episode seven while attempting to vandalize her soon-to-be ex-husband’s house. Is this emotionally healthy? No. Does she look wonderful while seeking revenge? Yes. What does it take to successfully pull off one of these hats? Sufficiently cold weather in which no on […]
I recently joined an inspiring Facebook Group, FiberBoss Collective with KnitFitch. I put out a request for diverse fiber artists to interview on my blog, and Meret Bützberger-Brunner was kind enough to suggest I speak with Lise Condis. I was immediately intrigued when I went to Lise’s website: TréLiz. Lise specializes in luxurious hand dyed […]
I’m so excited that my Penny Dreadful: Gothic Sweater Chic post was featured on the Knitting Love Link Party. The Knitting Love Link Party is a great way for knitting bloggers to share their posts and community together. It is run by Marie Segares and Jessie At Home. Both of them run helpful blogs with plenty […]
While I am very excited about all the winter ensembles in Finland and Raven’s scarf, first I must ask: what the hell is The Bachelor doing to the format? What a useless hour long episode! The rose ceremony looked miserably cold, windy, and had NO SUSPENSE whatsoever. The chill of a final four rose ceremony […]
Nick has always seemed a bit more human to me than other Bachelor male contestants. He always seemed like the kind of guy I might actually want to date- an overthinking, emotional type. I just never quite bought into his previous “villian edit” seasons.
