When Is The Knitting Reality Show Coming?
What? It’s not an outrageous question. The third, that’s right, third taxidermy reality show started yesterday. Competitive taxidermy, people. That’s a thing.
OK, fine. Go one with your bad, dead animal art making self. Do what makes you happy. I’m not gonna watch it or anything because I find it horrifying on multiple levels but I hope they are successful in their endeavors.
So knitting. I do that. I find it interesting. There are roughly 2 million knitters on Ravelry, the most popular knitting website on earth and there is such thing as competitive knitting. Copyright, What a Witch if that thing comes up on television somebody shout me out.
Personally, I think that competitive knitting is the wrong direction to go. Were it me, I would go with a Real Housewives vibe.
For serious, we can be bitches but there’s also a huge “be nice,” social pressure. People who are not me respect that and they are bitches under that veneer.
There are whole groups on Rav from which they could just copy and paste whole pages of text and act them out.
If they were smart, they would add some custom colorways on varying yarn bases. They would make a fucking mint.
Knitter (in fairness fiber artists, because crocheters and spinners exist too. I just don’t do either of those things.) would be outstanding subjects of a show like that.
Can you imagine? Hair pulling over the sock needles, cat fights over the Tilly Thomas, “OMG she said she wasn’t going to make that pattern and know she shows up with it in progress?”
They could call it Stitch & Bitch.
I would watch the hell out of that show.
