Tricoter is French for knitting - pronounced "tree-co-tay."

OK with my last post I am "out of the closet." I knit. And for some reason yesterday was a very busy day for posts on FB related to knitting. Here's what happened:

1. WWF - World Wildlife Fund has been promoting National Sweater Day - not to be confused with National Sweater Girl Day which I think is a Sports Illustrated "thing." Anyway WWF has Ryan Gosling in a knitted sweater with the title - Voulez-vous crochet avec moi (ce soir). OK that's for a crocheted sweater. Really sex sells.

2. I suppose that they could have chosen another celeb - maybe one a little kinkier - any suggestions - and had the same promo for a knitted sweater - with Voulez-vous tricoter avec moi (ce soir) - maybe "trickier" sex sells even better.

3. Then there was the flash mob scene celebrating this woman in Holland who has knit 550 sweaters since 1955 and stored them in her house. Some videophile found her and created this amazing scene of all these people wearing her sweaters.

I guess that she's out of the closet too or at least out of the house!!! Now to raid some other closets and see what's in them.  This is much better than storage locker wars :) Can't wait to video the bones in "them thar" closets. It's just amazing what you find, when you decide to tidy up!!

Next to finish that sweater started in 2005. I've got 7 days!!

Have a sexy sweater day.


  1. Very cute. I liked the video. I have friends that knit so sent this on to them. I crochet but have been using the Knifty Knitters to knit. And I like the things I've made so far.

  2. Thank you Sue. Knifty Knitter sounds like fun!

  3. This is amazing! The video was great and it looked like she enjoyed it as well. Wow 500 sweaters!

  4. Thank you Susie. Yes it's amazing what some people do!!

  5. I used to knit a lot when my kids were small and things knitted up quickly :). Thanks for the fun post :)

  6. I love knitting! I've been doing it for about 10 years now. I've been crocheting since I was 5 years old. There is something special about making gifts. I look forward to reading more about your knitting adventures.

  7. I don't knit. I crochet. I've tried t learn to knit several times over the years. I've never been able to. But crocheting? I've crocheted since 1970 and I love it. (except for sweaters - which I've crocheted, but I suspect knitting is a lot nicer for that.)
