    Oh, no, that post from Franklin made me cry. I never cry. I’ve never met him but I read his blog for years when I was knitting all the time. He is such a lovely person and so generous. And funny. I always thought he was attractive, in that not-conventionally-beautiful way people are always described in romance novels. I am so glad he modeled the trunks anyway (and they are much more appealing than my mind’s eye showed them to me). And fuck those commenters. (Sorry to swear on your blog)

    @Sunita: Swear all you like–there are parts of the knitting community that are SO toxic–but we’re all so niiiiice (sound familiar?). Franklin was so nice and so professional during the class I took from him–he made sure to say positive things about everyone’s projects and he was just really excellent (unlike another Big Name Knitting Teacher I took a class from a few months later). And he is hilarious–I think my favoritest post ever on his blog is the one where a random lady asked him if he had learned to knit in prison.
