I’m so excited to finally be able to post this! A few months back I was contacted by a production coordinator for Disney XD. They had seen the mug cosies I make and ended up commissioning me to make four “book sweaters” - props for a infomercial skit they did for the show Gravity Falls! Now that the infomercial has been aired, I can finally share these! See the infomercial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofdj1jMzQFY

Why do knitting patterns have to specify the exact kind of $100 yarn to use instead of just giving me the weight. I’m broke, I can’t afford “Golden Farms Jewel-Encrusted Alpaca Fur.” Give me the damn yarn weight so I can go out and buy the cheapest, crappiest alternative.
