Indie rock knits

Today sees the release of new albums by one of my favorite bands and the artist who made my favorite album of 2005. Belle and Sebastian have occasionally made knitting references in songs, and I wouldn't be surprised if someone in the sprawling group wields the needles. Until reading a piece about Sufjan Stevens' latest, I had no idea that he knits. Of course he does.

Hey, I'm not knocking the guy. Obviously. I was just unaware that he knits. Sufjan's image as a sensitive folkie plays right into what some might characterize as the male knitter stereotype, so I'm a little amused to find some truth in it.
