brioche hat

 

I like to start off my Friday posts with a pattern that I’m really crushing on. This week I’ve been thinking about the Brioche Hat by Linda Lencovic (of Kettle Yarn Co). I’m a little late to the party in recommending this pattern to you since Linda was donating proceeds from the purchase to an LGBT rights group during the Olympics and, well, the Olympics are over. But you should buy this pattern. And you should buy some of Linda’s yarns because they are YUMMY.

Before we move on to the link stuff, there is some congratulations in order. First, Ravelry reached 4 million members! (Very cool stats under that link!) Can you believe that? It feels like there were just 2 million yesterday. It’s so amazing! Next, CRAZY BIG congratulations to Amy Christoffers in her new position as Design Director at Berroco. I can’t imagine anyone else that could take over for Norah and I’m just so pleased that Amy is being recognized like this. Obviously, I have a lot of other knitters to fight for title of Amy’s number one fan but you KNOW I’m a proper Christoffile.

>>  Some interesting facts about knitting from the British game show QI. A few pieces of trivia you probably knew before but the codes and islands are fascinating and new to me!

>>  I’ve been looking for this gif set for forever. Thanks, tumblr! Sherlock is one of us.

>>  This post by the Yarn Harlot really speaks to me! After a long work week, I always want to spend a day with a Netflix marathon and my needles but I, too, have that nagging feeling that I should be doing something else. It’s so tough to find balance between indulgence and responsibilities!

>>  The television gods have listened! Tomorrow National Geographic will be premiering Shear Madness, a show about California shepherd Natalie Redding. I’m SO EXCITED for this. Say it again: I WANT MY KNIT TV.

What are you knitting on this weekend?

Gif Friday

It’s Friday. Let’s get the weekend started early.

When my friend says that wool is too itchy, I’m like:

When I read the Olympic Committee’s cease and desist letter to Ravelry, I was like:

Skein of Thought and Threadpanda Guest Post!

Written by Sarah. Posted in knits, KYC Presents, toys

Hello lovely readers! I have some cool news to share with you. Today I’m releasing a new video! It’s is part of a new series that I am working on along side the KYC Presents videos. These are called A Skein of Thought and they are shorter cuts from footage that did not make it into the original interviews. It’s like bonus material. It’s very groovy. The first one involves Anna Hrachovec from Mochimochi Land and stop motion animations and gifs.

“But where is the video? I can’t wait to see it!” you say. Well, I told you I had cool news. The video will make it’s debut on the Threadpanda blog. Amy has invited me to do a guest post and I thought it might be fun to release the video over there.

So. Get your butt over to Amy’s blog but don’t just check out my post. Amy has been blogging up a storm this month and I could not be more in awe of her dedication. There is a lot of yarny goodness going on there so stick around for all of that!

Now, all of this being said, I don’t think I’ll have time for another post before Thanksgiving. Jon and I are doing a lot of the cooking for Thanksgiving so there is much to be done! I hope you all have a lovely holiday and fantastic food and great people to share it with. I won’t begin to list here all of the things that I’m thankful for but I will say this: I’m thankful that there is over a month until Christmas. There are a lot of gifts to craft! See you on the flip side!

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Have you subscribed to KYC Presents on Youtube? Are you making holiday crafts? How awesome is Threadpanda?

Updated: I was a little premature posting this here. The post is now up on Amy’s blog!

Mochimochi Weekend!

Written by Sarah. Posted in art, knits, KYC Presents, new york city, toys

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting with Anna from the amazingly adorable Mochimochi Land! I am so excited to announce that she’ll be featured in the third KYC Presents video!

Anna was nice enough to pull out all of the toys she’s designed and let us pet her kitties and she even showed us how she puts together those adorable stop motion gifs that I’m so mesmerized by! (Seriously I watched the gnome hopping on mushrooms for about fifteen minutes.) I’ve been following Anna’s work for a long time and I just can’t get enough of the cute!

I am so ready to start cutting this interview! I’m also holding back from casting on some teeny tiny hamburgers for a certain somebody so that I can focus on editing! (Who am I kidding, it’s time to knit some Mochimochi!)

Have you knit any Mochimochi? Which gif is your favorite?
