Watch the Pilot Episode of “The Knitterati” – a Knitting Comedy from Canada

The Knitterati is a Canadian comedy short about knitting AND the knitting shop it takes place in, The Purple Purl, is right around the corner from my sister-in-law’s house in Toronto.

“Hipster darlings of the knitting community, Mary Crochet & Gerry DiLana struggle to keep their store afloat amidst a string of bad luck. It’s the least they can do to keep themselves and their loyal customers happy. But their lives are unraveling too quickly to keep it all together.”
