I’ve talked about Sarah of Knit York City before—if you’re not already following her blog and subscribed to her YouTube channel, in which she chats with various wonderful people in the knitting industry, well, you are seriously missing out, my friends. Today Sarah’s sharing a bit about her background in film making, as well as debuting a new segment and quasi-outtake from her recent interview with Anna Hrachovec from Mochimochi Land.
Hello Pandas! In case we haven’t met, I’m Sarah. I make videos about knitting.
I promised myself that I wouldn’t write a guest post about me; I wanted to share what I’m about with you lovely readers. But I would like to share with you how this relatively new project started.
During the end of our time in film school, my boyfriend and I made a documentary about his favorite food: The Hamburger. (There’s a sweater.) It was crazy fun and involved eating some of the best hamburgers in New York City. And meeting some of our idols that make this great American food their life’s work. After the film’s premiere at the NYC Food Film Festival (where foodie audiences were served burgers and beer while watching the flick), I decided that I wanted to do something similar but it had to involve my favorite thing (which is knitting, duh, guys, keep up) geared towards audiences of knitters. I wanted to give knitters an opportunity to meet these industry insiders that we so admire face to face (well, over the internet) when their names have so long conjured up images of patterns and colorways. It’s allowed me to sit down with some really awesome designers, dyers, and artists, and I love hearing about what drives their work.
I recently released the latest interview which featured Anna Hrachovec from Mochimochi Land. I’ve been a big fan of her work for a long time and you should be too! Her designs are so clever and adorable. And she lives in New York.
Today I’d like to share with you more from Anna’s interview. It’s part of a brand new feature that I’ve been thinking up called Skein of Thought. These are shorter than the interviews, kind of the bits that didn’t make it into the first cut that I couldn’t stand not to share with you. This first one is all about the stop motion gifs that Anna shares on her blog. They’re so awesome and mesmerizing. I’m just fascinated by them.
Take a look!
Thanks to Anna, once again, for meeting with me! And thanks to Jon, Ashley, and Andrew for making the series possible! If you enjoyed the video, please like it on Youtube and subscribe so that you don’t miss any of the future interviews!
And, most importantly, thanks to Amy for letting me take over her blog today (especially with a little shameless self-promotion involved.)
Which knitters would you like to see in an interview?
