we still love you mo

Cirilia and I are both avid npr listeners and both of us love the weekend current events/comedy/game show “wait, wait… don’t tell me!”. W…e…l….l ,  the week before last, one of the regular panelists, Mo Rocca, happened to mention (during a story about knitting sweaters for bald chickens) that he hated homemade sweaters because they are “alway itchy”.  Gasp!  :)

Soon after, a discussion thread appeared on Ravelry, suggesting (among other things, cough) that someone should knit him a beautiful soft sweater.  Several folks even volunteered. I seized the opportunity. I’ve sent lovely soft pure merino heather in color 8615 Boysenberry Jam to the three ravelers who graciously volunteered to whip up the pieces. They’ll be knitting Ben. Several others have volunteered to do the finishing. I’ll have to figure that one out later.

Then, in a strange miracle of the modern age, Peter Sagal (the host of the show) tweeted us @berrocodesign because many knitters had written in and now knows about the sweater!!!!  Which lead to this week’s show which contains an apology from Mo that makes me grin from ear to ear. Link: Go to – Panel Round Two A special message from Mo Rocca.

He promised to model it.  I know, I know, small thrills…. but I love npr and wait wait… don’t tell me!
