I know you are supposed to be the cute and “hip” or even “edgy” host of knitty gritty. We got it! You aren’t my grandmother and you will never knit what she did, fine. But you’ve gone too far, you need an intervention. Guess what…I’m happy to say that I don’t think my grandmother would knit what you showed today. She’s probably rolling in her grave right now!
What am I talking about? Oh you know, those multi-yarn atrocities you showed off today. Where do I begin?!
Oh god, let’s start with this poor girl.
You acted like this was the cutest sweater Marc Jacobs knitted up for you. But open your eye’s Vickie! If not at the layers of Lion Brand crap you put on this girl, then please look at her hair! Why is it so tall? Why does the random pocket have a tassel? Why does she look like she was pelted with bobbles? Please notice at how she looks away in shame, she can’t even look towards the camera for fear of being recognized.
Now this girl, this girl really tried to work it.
It must have been all the crack she took before putting this on. What is it with the fun fur?! I love how you said that you could throw this jacket over anything? Did you really mean this?!
Good God! It looks like the eighties came back and threw up on her. I know what that jacket could be thrown over, how about a roaring fire?
Now I have a fun idea! Why don’t we knit a sweater in fair isle with huge fun fur (double stranded!) cuffs and collar? And you know what would be really cute? If we put something that looked like yarn in our hair to complete the snazzy look. REALLY, it will look great.
Well, at least she’s pretending to look happy.
Now Vickie, I know you aren’t the only one to blame for this crap. You are just the host after all, there was only one episode where you actually knit (and it was the same damn guitar strap from what, the first knitty issue?! Please move on!). At least one of the other people to blame wasn’t hiding. I just couldn’t believe she told everyone she designs for Lion Brand without shame. I think she’s just as shocked as I was though.
So what have we learned here Vickie? That you shouldn’t try to sell me Lion Brand, you should know when you have gone over the edge, and that everyone on knitty gritty is apparently on drugs. Please stop trying to act like you are the coolest thing around, please.
