Do you remember when we put up this Call for Submissions?

Our beloved Theresa Vinson Stenersen, who did such a fabulous job as our Techniques columnist for 9 years (!) decided she needed new challenges. (She’s moved from Norway, where we first met her, back to her family’s home in North Carolina — with her Norwegian husband — and in addition to her day job, now has a tiny but growing farm, including sheep, alpacas, chickens, a cat and Audrey, possibly the most beloved rescue dog in the history of dogs. Yup, she’s pretty busy.)

So we needed to find ourselves a new Techniques Columnist, and this time, we thought we would add something new: video! After our exhaustive search through some really fabulous contenders, one candidate’s video submission really struck us as very much right for Knitty, and she was the person we chose. Ladies and gentlemen, please help us welcome Knitty’s new Techniques Video Columnist, Kristin Fraser!

Sez Kristin, “I am so excited to be the new video techniques editor. Take a look at my video to find out a little more about my knitting life. While I love knitting, I make a living as a freelance tv news field producer and corporate video producer/editor. My husband is a college professor as well as being my videographer. We have two house rabbits, Scout and Lola (you might catch snapshots of them from time to time on my office wall). If you hear a strange noise in the background of my first video, it’s Lola snoring. I hope you find my video more interesting than she did.

We make our home in a rehabbed craftsman bungalow near downtown Seattle, Washington. I am working at being a more regular blogger and you can find me, the ‘neurotic knitter’, on Ravelry and Twitter.

I hope it’s pretty clear from the video that Kristin was chosen on her own merits, but yes, I would agree that a fondness for rabbits is considered an asset at Knitty HQ. We are a bunny-positive organization.
