Just when I think the Vampire trend can't go any further, I come across this. Anyone else rolling their eyes??


  1. bahahaha! no way. I can see all the 9th graders clamoring to learn to knit now...XD

  2. *stares at screen, dumbfounded*
    I really don't have a comment for this one :I

  3. Wow publishing Lets milk every last penny out of this fad.

    Will someone wake me up when the nightmare is over?

  4. That's so ridiculous, it's hilarious...haha! Quite frankly, I'm not even surprised.

  5. I think the best part is the description of what you can make
    " • Black capes are so 1897, instead get stylish with the dead sexy Sidhe Shrug.
    • Unleash your inner shapeshifter with the Werewolf Hat.
    • Keep warm while holding hands with your vampire by wearing these Bellisima Mittens.
    • Around humans? Use the Blood Bottle Cozies to disguise your beverage. "

  6. Mwahaha! That is completely crazy, but I guess if you're into knitting and are a vampire-lover, you would buy the book ... good marketing idea, although it makes me laugh maniacally in my head.

  7. Seriously I want a knit pattern for a cozy for my fangs ;D

    Oy vey

    Then again, perhaps I'd look twice if they did a "knitting for zombies" :)

  8. haha! That's so ridiculous and frankly, pretty stupid! But sadly, I know people who would actually BUY that book! :/

  9. I'm curious about the werewolf hat. Sounds like it has the potential to be quite cute (or absolutely hideous).

  10. hahahaha! Love it. And you know what's awesome? Vampires don't need knitwear...they don't get cold.

    And seriously, do you ever actually SEE anyone walking around with homemade knitted clothes? We get so many of those books through our office, but I have yet to see a knitted bikini or tank top on someone.

  11. LOL I saw that when I was searching for upcoming knit and crochet books awhile back and thought the same thing, it's pretty insane.

    The sad thing, is I bet some of the stuff inside will be beautiful but because of the whole vampire thing it will just suck. HA!

  12. when will it end!

  13. New follower here... your blog cracks me up!

    ... and oh sheesh.

    Vampires... they aren't what they used to be.

    I suppose if you have eternity you could probably master knitting though...

  14. You know what's funny? I can completely imagine what kind of knits vampires would wear. I may have to ask my mom to buy this and knit me some sweaters (yes, she does that for me).

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
