Being Princess Animal is complicated. We must arm our populace for the upcoming Craftolypse with an ever-changing and best-of, and coolest collection of yarnz and bookz–while ruling with a furry fist. We must conquer distant lands (this means going out anywhere but the Mission, which We do not seem to do), because we’ve been watching the Vikings, and the Princess is getting all Ragnar about it. She is thinking about building a better yarn boat, perhaps to sail across the uncharted waters of Golden Gate Park’s Lily Pond, which We hear has been fighting an invasion by the evil African clawed frog. All this while swinging to and fro between bouts of unquenchable rage, unquestionable joy, and pure mischief.
How do We, the staff, bring calm to the uncontrollable Princess? Simple. Easy knitting. Beautiful, lovely, brain-resetting, center-restoring stockinette, the stuff knit and purl dreams are made of. Soooo…easy. Look at her go. Sitting still, smiling, zen-like, fingers humming along while witnessing the human sacrifice rituals of the ancient Vikings. Ah, so delightful.
Simple knitting has been the Princess’ manna of late these days. Sure, there was complicated, challenging knitting in the past, but the sun is out again, and oh, to let the fingers fly without fear of mistake. Actually finishing projects. It is all. It is everything.
Here is what the Princess is working on, from what is quickly becoming Our new favorite tome, Very Easy Sweaters from Vogue Knitting. Give us stockinette, or give us…something else. Death’s a bit too extreme, ain’t it?
Tell us, won’t you? What’s your easy crafting love?
Oh, hey, and while we’re at it…we’re looking for a talented new staff member come June! Want to join the Princess’ Not-So-Secret Service? Drop Us a line at email@example.com. More details on this soon.
