  • I just watched this episode last night. Thoroughly entertaining and hilarious. Thanks Patty for an amazing ride.

  • Enjoying you very much, but I wish you had a more entertauning adversary. Thank you for all the explanations. Always helpful and clear!

  • Lol. Missed the opportunity to spell his name wrong on the vest though. 😉

  • Patty PLEASE design an enamel pin for the foul-mouthed knitting community (FMKC!)

    • That’s a fantastic idea!! Yes please do!!

      • Total perfection! I love it and I love you Patty!

    • Yes!! I’d. Love. One.

    • Want one…will buy 2!!

  • Oh Patty that’s priceless, what a hoot. Love you, Seth and that sweater!

  • This is great!! Thank you Patty!!!

  • I am so late to the game but this is absolutely hilarious!

  • Thank you Patty! Proof that knitters are clever, funny, multi-talented, creative, courageous and people who have grit. Can’t wait to see you teach Seth to knit. Going to my Twitter and Instagram now

    • Loved watching Seth speaking about Knitters on his show and then finding out it was YOU!
      F%?king awesome!!

  • Love love love this.

  • 100%!!!
    Well executed, Patty!

    • You missed the fact that he can’t tell a vest from a sweater.

  • Hysterical!!!

  • We’ll played!

    • Ditto

  • Bravo!

  • Absolutely fabulous!! You started my morning with a great big smile and laugh out loud!!!

    • Are you following the news coverage of the knitted quilt that A$AP wore to the Met Gala. It appears to be made of quilted fabrics. No evidence of knitting….

      Though it is totally fabulous. And I’ve read about a woman in Pennsylvania who is making fabulous jacket out of quilts.

  • “Sewed me a sweater” lmao!

    • Yep, maybe more ammo to be used later! Ha!!!

    • Right?! Comedic genius! Keeping the game going!

  • OMG – this is hilarious and I had no idea it was going on! Patty, you kick ass!

  • Patty, thank you! It’s always a joy to start the day laughing. You’re the best 🙂

  • What a wonderful early start to my day. Thank you Patty for being the Jackal voice of the knitters. I loved it so!!!

  • This was fabulous! Yes, I am now a Nana, but I have been knitting since I was a very young girl, knit my way through my degree, endless work meetings, and on and on. And people who mix up knitting and crocheting are usually in for a correction. And the expletives aren’t limited to the mix-ups, but I have been known to throw out a few choice words (not in the presence of grandsons), when something goes wrong with the knitting project! Thanks for a great wake-up this morning!

  • What an honor to be someone’s nemesis!

  • Thank you, just what the doctor ordered! Dropped a few stitches laughing.

  • This is hilarious!

  • When did knitting become an issue ? WTF ! Knitting has been my creative outlet since 1983 and the one time I asked the local yarn store owner how to show me how to crochet edge on the first sweater I made for my three year old daughter this woman yelled at me about how clumsy I was with a crochet hook ! I have never tried again and took the EZ way of I cord

    • I hope you never went to that yarn store again. People who teach need to encouraging, not terrifying.

  • Loved watching this whole “saga” I nfold!

  • This had me in stitches!

  • Loved every minute! Especially because before now I only knew a bit of the story from a brief text exchange with my knitting group.

    I too LOVE Amber Ruffin. She now has her own show on Peacock. No small feat to be forced to start a show meant to have live studio audience in midst of pandemic and it’s still great – even without the staff chuckling as the audience.

    Bonus for Seth, I bet he has lots more viewers thanks to Patty.

  • F+#king awesome!

  • I love this so much!

  • Everything about this is SO GOOD.

  • hilarious!!! Let me know when the enamel pins are available

  • I’m so HAPPY to read this article! I had heard about the “conversation” between you and Seth and just did not have the wherewith all to search out the individual sections. Seth Meyers should know better than to “take on” the formidable Patty Lyons! Thanks so much!

  • Respek, Patty.

  • Here’s a copy of my Tweet to him:

    Hey @sethmeyers @LateNightSeth – joke’s on you: Just wait til you see the size of the knitting needles @Patty_Lyons is gonna make you use when she teaches you to knit…if you’re man enough! And yea, we are a fun-loving, life’s-too-short, hard-partying, risk-taking, wild group!

  • Hurray! Knitters are a force to be reckoned with! We’ve now gone mainstream thanks to Patty. This is so fantastic, I absolutely love it and will share it around my knitting community. But do call him out on sewing a sweater, please.

  • Love you, adore this string of interactions with Seth. He is a treat and handled your “needling” quite well. Well played indeed! Thank you for this knitting expose.

  • spectacular! I love this so much. Going to tweet at him now.

  • This is so funny! Thanks for the clips! “sewed me a sweater” LOL

  • So funny!

  • Loved every moment! Thank you for sharing this whole hysterical ongoing relationship with your little guy in the attic. Especially thank you for representing the knitting community so well!

  • That’s hilarious! I remember seeing the first part where he read the comment from the sweary knitter, I didn’t know there was an on going interaction!

  • This made my day!! I’ve been out of the loop (literally haven’t knitted a stitch in months and haven’t been watching much) — Thanks for posting the saga! So much fun!!! Jackals! Yessssss…

  • Hilarious, Patty! F*&#ing hilarious… Well played and I can’t wait to see you teaching Seth to knit! And to see what you do next. Knit, Purl, MATCH!

  • One part of the interviews that bothered me is Seth’s references to ‘homemade sweater’. That’s an archaic term for hippy, or elderly pastime hobbies, in some minds. Isn’t ‘handmade sweater’ more appropriate? I know, I know, too picky? I’d be offended if one of my knitted gifts were referred to as ‘homemade’. Truly.

    • Opps! if this was part of the fun banter – I’m red-faced! Just move on…

      • I enjoyed reading the Comments as much as I enjoyed watching the videos!!!! Thanks Patty for standing up for all of us…

  • atta girl. This is wonderful

  • So awesome!

  • That was amazing! First time I saw it all. So much fun.

  • It’s been following along with this. Thanks for the laughs

  • This is absolutely hilarious! You rock, Patty! Here’s another tidbit for Seth: just read on KP (knittingparadise.com) this morning that Newfoundland has erected a statue honoring …. wait for it … knitters!! Here is the link to the news article https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/nonia-100-years-knitting-statue-1.6189671. Enjoy!

  • I’ve just read and watched the story unfold… Hilarious! This is just sooo good! Thank you! Love a good laugh.

  • Absolutely awesome, thanks for all of this Patty. Just watched the whole series!

  • Love this so much….

  • This is hilarious! Well done my fellow @!#$%@!$ knitter!

  • Patty – I really enjoyed your “war” with Seth! Thanks!

  • This is hilarious!! Thank you for sharing the epic battle!

  • This is THE BEST! Thanks for the Saturday morning laugh out loud!!!

  • Ready for Act VIII – the difference between a vest and a sweater (geesh!)

  • Hahaha! Touché Patty!!!

  • Seth Myers (or is it Meyers, or Mayer’s, or Muiers) should DEFINITELY learn how to sew (or is it crochet, or knit, or weave) a sweater (or is it a jumper, or a vest, or a pullover, or a tank top). 1. Knit. 2. Pearl. 3. Relax.

  • OMG this is “f-ing” hilarious. Go Patty go!

  • Fabulously funny

  • Patty, you are awesome!

  • Hysterical. “Sewing”? This isn’t over, Seth Myers!

  • Fantastic finale of Seth wearing his new sweater. But since he’s been planning this for 10 years, does he really think he has it all mapped out as his plan to garner to custom hand knit sweater? All I can say is: Sherry Lewis and Lambchop had Seth Meyers all planned out, many decades in advance.

    Now, back into the fray. HOMEMADE sweater!? Will you let him get away with that!

  • Just. So. Much. Fun. Thank you, Patty!
