Knitting Rocks!

Knitty Gritty aired their "rock-n-roll" episode again today, where host Vicki Howell demonstrates for her rock-n-roll knitsters how to make a knitted guitar strap. At her side was Share Ross, guitarist for Bubble and a fellow knit-blogger. Share has a book called "Punk Knits" coming out this fall which apparently will have rock-n-roll knit patterns, which should be fun and funky. Looking forward to it!

I've seen this episode a few times already, and always get a kick out of the "knit-bit" where they show a clip from Steriogram's "Walkie Talkie Man" video, which is animated almost entirely with yarn and knitted objects.

Take a gander here:
