With some trepidation I have added a new design to the shop.
Sure, she's a timeless symbol of love and beauty. But can she knit?
I have no idea whether anybody will actually buy this one. It's a bit out there. My test audience of four gave three guffaws and one "Huh?" But I see this as half the fun of blogging: You get to subject a large number of unsuspecting people to the freakish ideas spinning around in your head. Come closer, my pretties. Closer. Closer.
Maybe it also reveals something about me that this is the third design featuring an object of worship.*
I have a knitting Buddha sketch kicking around, but don't hold your breath waiting for the "Mohammed Knits" mug. I don't need that kind of trouble.
Anyway, about Venus. She's only on a bag and a simple t-shirt right now, but if you'd like to buy her on another style of shirt or whatever, speak up. We aim to please.
What I Said
What I said to the sleazy guy was, "I'm not knitting for charity this week."
Mrs. Parker wept.
*No, not the ball of yarn. Well, not only the ball of yarn.
