I spied this card on the Yarn Harlot’s gift guide and I’m just in love with it. (I also really like this one but only because I wish it said ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY.) I guess you could say there’s a bit of an anti-gift theme going on around here. I hate to seem like a downer. I really do love giving handmade gifts! This should be a safe place to complain and even laugh about the stress of holiday times.

>> I made a couple of pies for Thanksgiving which was exhausting on top of everything else. I feel like a total failure looking at this knitted pie crust. It’s so gorgeous, how could you eat it!?

>> Every knitter on the internet is looking for the Katniss Cowl. I swear I’ve never seen a more popular piece of knitwear. I wrote about the cowl before but here’s an interview with its designer Maria Dora about the unique piece that is quickly becoming iconic!

>> The big, bad sale weekend may be over but the time shop independent is NOT. Check the list (and add your own favorite). There are tons of small businesses with perfect, unique gifts for your friends!

>> I’ve watched this commercial six times. It’s still funny. If you get a package from me, watch out. Did you get the cozies?

>> If you need some knitsperation, Paper Mag has a list of their top 10 knitwear designers in the fashion industry.

Holiday Knitting Explained in Gifs

Written by Sarah. Posted in that gif post

Thought I’d given up the gif? They’re back just in time for a little holiday present from me to you.

After last Christmas, I decided knitting holiday presents was just too stressful.
nobody got time

Definitely not doing it this year!
louis ck

david tennant nope

These socks would make a great gift, though.
james mcavoy
“Didn’t you say you weren’t going to knit holiday gifts this year?”
dumbledore bitch please
Welp
i lied
It’s ok, it’s not like I had plans anyway.
anna kendrick
It won’t be fair to just knit for one person. Ok, one more hat won’t throw off my schedule. I got this.
loki
Wait. Chanukah is early this year?
steve brule
Um
doctor
huge mistake
help me
Why do I even do this?
silver linings

But I can only blame myself.
orange is the new black
Miraculously, I somehow manage to finish just in time.
brush shoulder off
And everyone loves their gifts.

So, overall, that went well. If I just start a week earlier next year-
dexter

No, I’m never doing this again.
gatsby
Oh ok.
joan mad men

What are your holiday knitting plans? Did you start early this year? (No one will be mad if you buy them a Ricefield Collective hat instead.)

ps. Last year’s holiday gifs!

Sheep Humor

Written by Sarah. Posted in kollabora, life, that gif post

It’s already turning out to be a rough week. I’ve spent a few too many nights building Ikea furniture. (I really can’t stop myself when I go to Ikea.) Anyway, since there’s not much to report on my knitting front (still working on that damn faire isle sweater), let’s just have a laugh.

If you haven’t seen this video of goats yelling like humans, do so now. God I love goats. If you liked that, you’ll love this:

Okay, I promise there will be actual posts about actual things this week. Stay tuned. I’m going to go drink some tea.

ps. Check it out, I was featured in Kollabora’s Meet the Maker profile!

Last night, Barack Obama won the election. I could not be happier. I was up all night watching coverage of all of the returns, so nervous I couldn’t even knit. That being said, there is not a proper post today. Just celebrating. Let’s have some gifs.

Every time someone says “Wow! You knit that!?” I’m just like:

“Continue in stockinette stitch until piece measures 17 inches”

Stuck in the waiting room without my knitting, I’m totally like:

When a stranger tells me I must be so patient because I’m a knitter, I’m just like:

Seeing a sweater I wanted to make at Rhinebeck, I was like:

Don’t forget about the Sandy relief raffle!
