Remember a couple of years ago when celebrity knitters were all the rage? There was Julia Roberts, Russell Crowe, David Arquette. Apparently the latest celebrity to come out of the knitting closet is Deborah Norville.
I wanna know. Are these people still knitting? No way to tell. There's nothing about it on the web, no new "celebrity knitting" books coming out any time soon.
It seems to me that there are two types of celebrities in the knitting world.
There are the celebrity knitters, who are famous for other reasons and just happen to knit.
There are knitter celebrities, who are famous because of their knitting.
Judging from what's available on the web it seems that knitter celebrities are of greater interest to knitters as a whole. However, I would love to see a celebrity knitter blog.
Hey FYI out there. I'm sending out the KnitLuck newsletter tonight, with links to the top articles in the last week and special deals from handmade sellers.
Thank you for your time. :)
I'm going to do something different tonight. I'm going to knit.
Don't worry though. There will be more coming from KnitLuck soon.
In the meantime, enjoy a few of my favorite posts:
I met KnitPurlGurl on Twitter and also happened upon her blog and thought this was something to share.
She talks about how she has dealt with her son's Asperger's syndrome. Reading her story has me wondering why we've let the medical industry work the way it has been for so long. For me, this highlights how desperately we have to completely overhaul our medical system. Unfortunately I don't think that's going to happen until there are protests.
In the meantime, please visit KnitPurlGurl and find out more about Asperger's.
Reading the Yarn Harlot this morning, I became intrigued by the goings on at BMFA's Sock Camp AKA, Camp Knittyhaha. Of course, I'm jealous that I did not attend, but thankfully these people have detailed their experience so that the rest of us may live vicariously through them, or at least plan to go to August's Sock Conference in Portland.
The Goddess Knitters have some excellent pictures, and a countdown to the Sock Summit. Only 122 days left!
Cupcakefaerie from Sheear Madness shows us some photos from the dyeing session (ps nice header on your blog!!!)
Hizknits does a brief mention (bonus points for you if you can find his jazz hands photo on another camp post!)
Nathania from Purlescence attended and led the group in some yoga poses.
Of course Adventures in Sock Knitting was there.

I'm Angela. I'm an obsessed knitter.
Blogging about knitting since 2004.
What's going on now?
To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
