Kate Nash Visits the Lion Brand Yarn Studio

A few months ago, the amazing indie star Kate Nash came by to spend the day with us at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio.  Turns out she is a long time knitter and she really wanted her new interview for Nylon Magazine to be done in a yarn store…and lucky for us, she picked ours!

Click the video below to see her interview. (Reading this blog post in your e-mail? Click the title of the blog post to see it in your web browser and see the video.)

She planned on spending an hour with us and ended up staying all day. (Sound familiar? Who can only spend 1 hour in a yarn store?)  She knit and talked, and played with our amigurumi.

Kate is an old fashioned girl she doesn’t much care for digital photography; what she does love is her handy Polaroid for instant gratification the old school way.  Here’s her signed picture with me and Will.

As she was leaving, after filling two huge bags with yarn, she declared, “This is the best wool shop ever…ever!”  Kate, we think you are the best indie singer/knitter ever…ever!
