Famous Knits: Shameless

Written by Sarah on February 28th, 2013 Posted in famous knits

We are deep into Season 3 of Showtime’s Shameless (not to be confused with the long-running BBC original) and I couldn’t be more pleased. So much drama going on there now! It’s getting pretty gritty. When January rolled around and Shamless was back on the air, I was a happy kid! Nothing like getting cozy with a beer and enjoying some new TV. This show might be my favorite thing on television. It’s hilariously outrageous but really hits you with a serious case of the feels. I’m surprised people aren’t talking about it more.

The cast is fantastic. Emmy Rossum is definitely in my top three celebrity’s I’d like to be friends with (right after Jennifer Lawrence and Amanda Seyfried, as I’ve outlined before). I love each character more than the last. (This is a total secret but sometimes, when I’m having a rough day, I ask myself ‘What would Fiona do?’ and then go kick ass.) I’m definitely on Team Gallagher.


But let’s talk about the man we all love to hate: Frank Gallagher.

Of course, me being me, when I saw that slouchy, dirty hat that is Frank’s signature accessory, I immediately wanted to make one. It’s so funny. Such a perfect piece for the character. I love the way he wears it.

I was so surprised by how amazingly well William H Macy could toe the line between hilarious and despicable. He’s great. Like I said, the show’s really got it!

Are you watching Shameless? Are you excited about this season? Do you want a Frank hat?

ps. Did you know that Allison Janney played Sheila in the pilot?! I love Allison Janney but I don’t think the show would be the same without Joan Cusack. She’s priceless.

    OMG no one around here is talking about that show. With a cast like that, how could it be bad?!? I will have to wait till the first season season is over and then start watching the discs, like I am for Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and Boardway Empire.

      I don’t know many people watching it! I heard of it really randomly because nobody’s talking about it.
      It’s a great show with a lot of heart. And a ton of stuff that’s so outrageous I can’t believe it’s on TV (even on Showtime!) Definitely keep an eye out for it on Netflix! Here’s the promo for season 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwzifUw9nKo
