Muffy Bolding

Withered Debutante Muffy Bolding learned to knit on my great big sofa and says...

"At the beginning of Summer 2009, CJ Arabia sat me down cross-legged on her couch in Los Angeles, turned on Nancy Grace, thoughtfully handed me two refreshing, ice cold bottles of water -- one to drink, and one to rest against my sweltering cooter -- and taught my fatass how to knit. Not only have I never looked back, I am now completely obsessed -- thanks in no small part to her endless enthusiasm and encouragement. It is absolutely an understatement to say that she has changed my life. She's like a thoroughly hot, hip, modern knitter...except with your grandmother's infinite patience, huge hooters, foul mouth, and questionable moral fiber -- though that might be just MY grandmother, so of that I shall speak no more. As a writer, artist, crafter, DIY proponent, and animal activist, CJ is fearless, generous, enthusiastic, and insanely talented -- and as a knitter and knitting teacher, she is exactly the same. She believes in you and the power of your needles LONG before you do. I imagine that someday -- if they are fucking lucky -- tens of thousands of people will have learned to knit from CJ Arabia...and it will be a great badge of honor to be able to make that claim. ALL HAIL CJ ARABIA AND THE VULGARIAN YARN MAFIA!"
