Knitting Interview


(Sound guy puts on introduction music)

Hi and welcome to my blog. Today there is something special in this blog. (Sound Guy whispers *Look to the title for spoiler alert*). You are going to have to read the blog to see what so special about today.

WIPs (Sound Guy said, *Works in Progress*)

 I am working on my own fingerless mitts. It is pretty common to make and all you really need to know is how to purl and knit. I am on the stockinet part, which is the main part, and means I finished the cuff. This is the second mitt. Yes, you need two of them to make a pair.

Shoulder holder is on hold. Sadly the pattern has a typo and that means I have to wait until I figure it out what went wrong. Sometimes even the more experience knitters make rookie mistakes. Hopefully it will be done before Christmas.

Now it is treat time. (Sound Guy says, *yum*)

(He puts on vampire approved music)

In an early part of the blog, I wrote a review on the book, Vampire Knits, by Genevieve Miller. She was nice to let me interview her for this blog. (Sound Guy *presses clap button). Now here it is live from the knitting world an interview with a vampire knitting writer.

Me: What is your favorite vampire movie, and book?

GM: I have to say that my favorite on the whole are the Twilight Saga movies. I can watch them over and over. I do enjoy Lost Boys and the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer – and of course, the original Dracula.

Me: Was it hard to come up with vampire and few shifter designs?

GM: Not hard. The designers and I had a lot to draw from, whether it was their eating habits, the stories and Lore, the many Vampire characters in literature and films and television- we had so much to inspire us!

Me: What was your favorite part of the book?

GM: Ooh! Not fair! My favorite chapter, or my favorite part of writing the book? My favorite chapter might be “Just Bitten” – only because of the idea of transitioning from a human to a vampire, and the garments are all things I would wear any day of the week.

In terms of my favorite part of writing the book? There were a lot of parts I loved – seeing everyone’s designs coming together, doing the research on vampire lore, writing the quizzes, seeing the photography and the printed book for the first time…

Me: If you were a vampire, what would you wear from the book?

GM: Well, I just finished the Lore Hoodie for myself, in a deep red. :) If I were a vamp, though, I would definitely rock the Prim Reaper corset, the Sitio Stockings, and the Rampage gloves.

Me: Is there another vampire knits in the makings?

GM: Not as of yet. I’m working on another project right now, but there might be in the future.

Me: What do you what people to take out of the book?

GM: I think there’s something for everyone in the book – that it’s not just a dark, Goth book filled with black, dark, costumey pieces. There are beautiful, feminine, practical knits you can wear every day of the year that don’t scream “VAMPIRE!” but remind you of cool, classic stories.

Me: Is there anything you wish that was in the book, but couldn’t put it in the book?

GM We wanted to have a toy section, but none of the toys were really working out. I had a vampire doll that you could tear off the arms, legs and head, but he was too floppy.

Well, Genevieve Miller had to go and I ran out of questions. If you want the book–you can buy it or rent at a book store or your library.

Ooh, I want that knit ware. Guess, I have to make it.


(Sound Guy puts on ending music)

Goodbye everyone. It was nice to have you guys read the blog. All the vamps and shifters out there…knit your heart off, and enjoy the night. For all the humans out there so long. Until we meet again.

Binding off,

    Have you by chance pondered including a bit more than just your own content articles? I mean, whatever you claim happen to be valuable and every thing. Having said that consider if you added in some terrific pics or simply films to grant your current content far more, “pop”! Your content is very useful yet with the help of pictures along with video, your blog could very well surely come to be one of the primary in its area. Amazing blog site!

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    This is the proper Knitting Interview | Knittingme diary for anyone who wants to attempt out out roughly this substance. You asking so such its most debilitating to fence with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new stunting on a message thats been scripted some for age. Overnice push, just major!
