Because I love being a geek, and I love that knitters are totally geeks. Case in point:
The Mario Scarf
Is it weird that I so want to do this for the final ship level in Super Mario 3? You know, the one with the BaBombs (bullets) and the hammer-throwing gophers? I think that would be sweet.
So far, my geekiness has produced a knitted dalek, and I imagine that it’ll only go from there (as much as I detest colorwork, some things are too cool to pass up)
By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish.
I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob.
Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
