Knitting gremlins!

So shortly after returning to classes, I had a brillliant idea!  Knitting gremlins!!!

They are the cause of all knitting related accidents, including but not limited to losing needles and other notions, dropped stitches, and missed repeats!

If you happen to be an avid knitter, they follow you around and reek havoc in the rest of your life as well.  Non knitters can be found with knitting gremlins, but generally they don't interfere in non knitters lives.  

I got bored at work and even drew a picture!!

The Adventures of Knitter Girl!!

After much debate, and surprisingly little alchohol, I am unveiling my superhero identity as Knitter Girl!!

After playing with several slogans, I have come up with "More effective in winter!"

Basically my friends and I are dorks and drank too much caffeine. I got cold and she gave me a blanket with snaps around the edges. My first thought was to make it a cape and Knitter Girl was born.

She knits you socks that are too small! And glorious wool sweaters, then felts them around you!!

How devious.

I'm seriously contemplating knitting a mask to go along with her and making her my idea for a halloween costume. I know halloween is forever away right now but if I'm going to knit the majority of my costume (and with a name like Knitter Girl, how could I not?) , then I might want to commit to something now.

Also! My friend is getting married this summer and she wants to know if I'll knit her veil. I was all like, HELLS YES!!! so I'm totally excited about this!
