SHOCKER: Knitting is a national TV show!

[ 6 ] April 15, 2007 |

Just so you know that not everyone at 6222 Rockfish Valley Hwy is weather obsessed …

I was working on the next issue and had DIY on mute (and had Coldplay up on iTunes). On pops the KnittyCam.

Knitty Cam

Still a fervent believer that knitting is not a sport despite what my husband says, it seems like the folks at DIY take knitting quite seriously. I am willing to bet this guy knit this snazzy skull cap himelf!

And then, the kicker! They bring in this poor guy and make him model a teal boa!

See his Oh-my-gosh-I can’t-believe-I’m-doing-this grin? Reason #3471 television is scary and should be avoided.

    Well, yes, it appears our inrepid local reports can be depended upon to bring us the MOST up-to-date reports on ALL the issues facing our nation today . You guys are something else. Thanks for being there for all of us. [gh]

    Okay Yvette…

    I’m going to get knit-picky. Until now, I’ve stayed silent over your competitive knitting slams – no more – you’ve gone too far. Tommy has been right all along and it’s time for you to admit it!

    You don’t think it’s a sport?

    What about one of the greatest teams of all time? The Knittany Lions?

    And as for entertainment – how about great movies like:

    Purl Harbor
    Shawl Shank Redemption
    The Longest Yarn
    Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wool

    And admit it – knitters can be funny – proof: Larry the Cable Stitch Guy

    I demand an apology – no, a retraction. Better yet, both!

    Hi Laurie,

    I must admit. You have presented quite a compelling argument in proving that knitting is indeed a sport. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wool. Hmmm … I knew Liz could drink but I guess she can knit as well!

    An apology isn’t out of the question. However, for a full blown mea culpa retraction, I think you should email us a picture of yourself engaging in the sport. I have heard of knitting helmets. Do you wear one when you knit?


  4. Laurie says:

    Oh Yvette…

    Still with the jibes. Of course I don’t wear a helmet – protective goggles yes, helmet no. And warming up is essential to avoid injury. I like to do a few deep knuckle bends, finger curls and wrist flaps.

    Still waiting for – uh you know – that apology and retraction…


  5. Laurie says:

    Pardon my spelling, it should have been gibes. And see how easy it is to admit when one is wrong!
