Mo Rocca learns to knit

April 2, 2010

A long time ago in a galaxy far away (Chicago, 2009, to be precise) Mo Rocca disparaged hand knitted sweaters as itchy.

Since then, Rocca has apologized, been presented with a hand-knitted garment, and, most recently, learned to knit from Debbie Stoller and a 10 year old named Felix.

Danielle posted the video on the FibreSpace blog. It’s amusing, although I find Stoller’s suggestion that knitters don’t often get together to drink and knit. Not that I’d know anything about that…

But back to the video:

Since it’s Friday afternoon and you aren’t doing any work anyway, you should also check out Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me’s backstage buzz blog post about the day the knitters came to a show taping and gave Mo Rocca the sweater.

I was listening that day and thought, “Oh Mo, you have no idea what you’re in for.” I love that knitters attended a taping to present him with a non-itchy sweater.

    I think you were the one who told me about it after it happened-we were visiting Hill Country Weavers.
