Episode 95: Tighty Aran Whities

by Brenda Dayne on November 11, 2010

In this episode, Granny Squares (my latest obsession) Granny Panties (should they be illegal?) and your grandmother’s knitting as Franklin Habit delivers advice from a poncho.

I’ll be discussing the Queen’s Facebook account, live, from 1:15 – 2:00pm on Friday, 12 Novermber. You can listen here, after the fact.

Knitted granny panties featured prominently in Project Runway’s Season 8 finale.


Then they showed up at Urban Outfitters.


Another attempt by the fashion industry to make grown women look ridiculous? Or Next Big (knitted) Thing?

The gay little autumn leaf in the header is from Holiday Doodles, this month’s free font from Outside-the-Line.com. PS: You should totally use Yultide Doodles to make Christmas cards this year.

This week’s Audible recommendation is At Home: A Short History of Private Life, is written and read by Bill Bryson.

Check our Brother Amos at Space Cadet Creations; and maybe not the world’s longest scarf, but surely the grandest scaled scarf in all of North Wales.

I feasted on glorious images of (mostly) knitting at the oddly named Feitoamao Tumblr blog, where I discovered the video embedded above. I also found an amazing knitter of Icelandic sweaters, and conceptual artist Jarod Charzewski’s piece, Scarp – a Geology of North American Consumer Culture, and bookshelf porn. From there I stumbled upon a blog devoted to Granny Squares, and found a wonderful tutorial for a Granny Square I’d never seen before (which isn’t saying much, I’ve not seen that many), which further inspired me to learn more Granny Square crochet patterns. If you know of some beautiful ones, please share.

If you’re looking for a hard copy of last week’s Audible pick, it’s available from these Amazon sellers.

Special thanks to Franklin Habit, for his Advice from a Poncho.
