FRIENDS! We already know how cool knitting is, but it’s pretty rare to find a celebrity who loves to knit and shows the rest of the world that it’s cool too. And guess who was up for chatting with us about knitting? None other than Katherine Heigl! YES, the incredible actress and celebrity that you know from Grey’s Anatomy, Knocked Up and tons of other shows and movies. She knits. And she knits pretty things. I’ve been a fan of her blog Those Heavenly Days for a while now, not only because I think she’s an amazing actress, but she’s also a domestic goddess, a mama and she has a lot of interests that I do including the mountains, cooking and most importantly KNITTING. Yep! After reading her blog for some time, I had some questions for her about her knitting. When I initially wrote to her, I hardly expected to hear back because she is super busy and most likely receives a zillion contact requests daily. But, she’s so gracious and she indeed got back with me so I could share with you not only a bit about her blog, but also a more in depth look at her knitting preferences. She even recently shared her current knitting projects in her most recent blog post “In My Knitting Basket” (and what an honor that she recommended my blog in that post)
Have a look at her stash! Don’t you want to just grab some of those yarns and squish ’em?
Another reason I wanted to share her blog with you is simply because if you like my blog, I think you’ll like hers. We have a very similar knitting style which became even more apparent after the little interview. (Read on) Not only that, I think that you’ll find that you can relate with her on a lot of what she has to say about our beloved hobby. AND unlike most celeb blogs that have massive teams running their blogs, she’s writing and running the show with hers. So without further ado, let’s get to the questions for Katherine! She’s got some good, sound knitting advice for beginners too so check it out. 😉
