When talking about knitting she confessed that the fact that she can do it anywhere—knitting in public, especially on the train, is particularly fun for her, “It’s just a better way to enjoy your commute time instead of being on your phone”—and anytime, like on set for Jessica Jones. “The crew always gets a kick out of seeing me knitting when I’m in full Jessica Jones costume.”

Trish and Jessica have been very close, but now they’re gonna have to navigate this complicated relationship. How’s that gonna be?
– For the Webby Awards you have to give a five-word speech. So I’m nervous. I have no idea what I’m gonna say…
– I do not remember what it was.
Let’s talk about Jessica Jones. She’s super strong. Well, I’m super strong, too.

HAPPY 36TH BIRTHDAY KRYSTEN ALYCE RITTER!! (December 16, 1981)
Introducing: a whole new collection designed by fellow knitter (and sometimes actress) Krysten Ritter.
A couple of years ago on screen and television, things start to shift in a big way. You start to see these complicated, messy women, and people are devouring them. We’re devouring them because there’s been a void and we see ourselves represented. All of us are complicated. All of us have shit that we run from, and when you become an adult, those methods for survival kind of don’t work anymore. And you have to go back, literally go back, and face these demons. That’s a theme that, I think, thematically women connect to. Everybody wants to be seen and represented and heard. Everybody wants to feel like they’re okay being really weird, different, or abnormal. We all do weird shit. We all do weird shit. And I think people are starting to see, like, “Wait a minute, my stuff isn’t that weird.” We’re all going through this. We all feel this. And I think it has to do with why we’re seeing such a big cultural shift. The more messy women that are put on screen and in books, the more we can be heard and relate and feel okay about it.
