Knit to This: Fridays with Felicia

This week, I propose that knitters looking for something fun to listen to while they’re knitting, knit to—us! Well, not just us. I’m leaving out the best part: a week ago, you and I were guests on a Vogue Knitting Live talk series hosted by Felicia Eve, owner of Brooklyn’s String Thing Studio. In addition to owning one of the most beloved knitting shops in New York, Felicia is co-founder of the Wool & Folk festival in Kingston, New York, an event for which MDK was among the proud sponsors this past October, its second year. Felicia is a genius at coming up with new ways to take knitting outside traditional venues to spaces we don’t often see it. She has a way of connecting and organizing that is inspiring to behold, and makes good things happen for knitters and people who don’t yet know they’d like to be knitters. Felicia gets people excited about knitting like nobody else.
