Knitwear Love

You Could Kill Someone With That Scarf

Our Agents who knit and crochet convene for this mission about our favourite pop culture knitwear. Instead of talking about lovers, we are talking about something that we love. Join us as we discuss our fibre art origin stories and things that we like to knit or crochet. So often during missions, our agents end up talking about knitwear and wardrobe and whether or not Christmas sweaters are good sweaters. This mission is a grand experiment that lets us fawn over pictures of knitwear so we can discuss what we like (or don’t like) about cable-knit sweaters. Yes. Of course, we talk about THAT sweater. And the longest of long scarves.
