Things I’d Force My Friends to Read

I have a confession… I am a link-sender. I send many many links and videos and pictures to friends and family, and I’m not one of those kind, relaxed link senders. I’m like ‘have you read it? how about now?….now? You’re killing me! Watch the goddamn video I sent you asshole. ‘ (thankfully, that’s the internal monologue rather than the external one). So I figured that I would continue in that vein on the blog in Things I’d Force My Friends to Read. Without further ado, here it is.


This pirate shanty from Key and Peele

I knew that Bea Arthur was a badass, but this is next level awesome.

This sex ed video from Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Trailer for a movie all about masculinity that will hopefully start/move forward a much needed conversation.

What Your Poop Says About You 

Tutorial on washing and blocking shawls from Truly Myrtle Part one and two

I need to get my hands on this book of top-down sweaters using a new set in sleeve method. Looks absolutely brilliant.

How to keep cool in the heat

Shocking absolutely no one: Men who harass women online are literally losers.  

I have long believed that mozzarella is the roast beef of cheese (in the best way). Also, beets are bomb. 🎵Put them together and what have you got bibbidi-bobbidi-boo 🎵


Knit in Color KAL

Knit in Color 1_MG_1881 - Version 2

I am slightly late to the game but two of my lovely Instagram friends/knitwear designers (who are also an adorable sister-in-law duo) Andrea and Lesley are hosting a KAL for their new collaboration Knit in Color. I am generally against KALs because knitting on deadlines stress me out, but I love their patterns and I am all about supporting badass entrepreneurial women. I chose Pop Fizzle, which is a hat and therefore not a huge commitment. First step: color choices. I tend to have a difficult time choosing yarn so I got out most of my fingering stash that isn’t already committed to other projects, and started playing around. The pattern calls for a DK but I’m going to swatch fingering held double. Final decision: Tosh Sock and Lynai sock yarn in Bloom. Now to cast on.
