Out of the Sketchbook

p2tog

I was rummaging through my sketchbooks and ran across this unpolished little gem. Somewhere in the Happy Knitting Grounds, Mary Thomas is clutching her chest and staggering backwards.

I promise I will not be publishing it as a pendant to this.

In my defense, I'm fairly certain it was created on a night when I was even more medicated than usual.

Note to self: In the future, do not mix cartooning and NyQuil.

That is just too funny! Thank you!

JoVE said...

That is great.

Paul said...

Hehehehe...

Rachel H said...

I disagree entirely. Please continue to mix cartooning and Nyquil.

Rebekkah said...

I'm in love.

M-H said...

I live this. Sandra and I have your Knit 2 Together mugs. Seems to fit.

Dee said...

Well I love it! My are you talented all doped up on NyQuil.

The Purloined Letter said...

I'm with rachel h!

Mel said...

*snigger* You said "P".

marie in florida said...

oh my dearest;
i was looking at the avuncular smooch and getting a little weepy then scrolled back up and got weepy with laughter at p2tog.
you are a gem.

anne marie in philly said...

heh heh heh, you said P (said in a beavis and butthead voice)

even my spouse got a guffaw out of this cartoon (and he doesn't even know what the knitting term P2TOG stands for).

they must be male sheep......

Inky said...

I would so buy this on a mug/tshirt/anything! Keep the nyquil cocktails coming!

canknitian said...

I especially love the smiles on their faces -- just perfect!

lisa said...

Oh I think it's funny and would make a great complement to the knit 2 together mug. Can one of them be dolores writing her name? I know this is tough to do as a girl, but, well, I have (we were camping...).

Carol said...

As I say to my kids, "Could you be any cuter?"

no-blog-rachel said...

I totally agree with Rachelh - keep the Nyquil.

catmum said...

I love it. I vote for more Nyquil and drink lots of water!

Isela: Purling Sprite said...

Hehehehe, love it!

CatBookMom said...

Speaking of peeing,,,,there's such a thing as too much laughing, esp if you're a few years older, lol!!!

Lee Ann said...

Dude, if you don't put this on a mug, I will have to cry. And you don't want that.

Seriously. If I never get a mug with this on it, I will not have lived.

Have I mentioned how much I love you?

loomatic said...

forget the nyquil, i wanna see vicodin and cartooning! who's with me?

Mother of Chaos said...

I haven't laughed that hard all day. BTW, the 'Sheep on a Plane' shirt has caused many a guffaw to erupt among my friends. I tremble to think how much of same would go on if I were sporting *this* one... :)

Anonymous said...

Oh, no - PLEASE add it as a mug! It's absolutely perfect.

Jo said...

Versed! I have Versed!
More! More!
Please, oh please, put this on cups and shirts and bags!
Please don't underestimate our sick and twisted senses of humor! :)

Laura A. said...

Why not publish it on a mug?! I think it's perfect!

Anonymous said...

Franklin, have you ever thought of publishing a book of your drawings called, Dolores and Company.

Norma said...

I did not see the caption and I thought they were having a knitter's pissing contest. Could happen.

Debbie said...

It's all class with you, Franklin.

Heather said...

t-shirt please, the cute girl style!

DianeS said...

I want a mug...it's just so appropriate. And I second the motion that you should publish a book of sheep cartoons.

Mia said...

Aaahh I love it. You are wonderful! I wish I knew you. I am at least glad I get to read your blog. Have a good day!

Norie said...

It's a guy thing, isn't it Franklin

ZhiWen said...

Too funny XD A great addition to your Cafepress shop (hint hint)?

rams said...

Yup. They need horns. But I'll toss a vicodin into the pot (as it were.)

- rams (no pun...oh, hell)

MonicaPDX said...

Oh, Goddess. The comments, as they frequently tend to be, are nearly as funny as the post. (catbookmom, rams...I nearly died!) I'll umpteenth the motions - more NyQuil + cartooning, add vicodin as necessary, and put it on anything you can!

Marcy said...

I would SO buy this on a mug.

Debbie said...

oh how funny. loved it.

ambermoggie said...

Oh but Franklin my dear, I think it belongs with the other mug, so apt and appropriate:) Sell them as a pair and keep on cartooning

That's adorable!

Redford Phyl said...

Leave it to you to save a day that started in a less than sterling manner. Thank you, Franklin. And yes, a shirt or mug or bag or anything. Guy thing or not, I still love it.

Sorka said...

Oh my!Nyquil and cartooning definitely mix.. but please let me warn you now Nyquil and knitting when really really sick.. they DONT mix..
If you get a minute can you please pop over to my site and see if you can help get the word out? I have a big mountain to climb!!
Thanks!

Judith Foldi said...

THANKS! I love it.

Tracey, in MI said...

Awwww come on. I'm a mom of 2 teen sons... that would be a knitting coffee mug they'd fight over!

Eileen said...

I so needed this today. Thanks. I agree with rachel---apparently you do some of your best cartooning while on Nyquil ;-)

Becky Clark said...

I don't see it on a coffee cup, but how about as a window decal for one of those big obnoxious pick-up trucks? Far less offensive than the NRA bumper stickers they usually have.

Sandra said...

Snort!
I would SO wear that on a t-shirt... and use the mug... And even after the fiasco of paying 90% of the cost to Canada customs, I would SO order those...

shyknitter said...

Also would love to see this on a mug!!

Anonymous said...

I think it's my favorite of your sketches so far.

Chris said...

This reminds me of when a non kintting friend of mine asked me what was with all the gansta talk in my knitting patterns. I must have looked her blankly and she started reading it. "Kint 2, yo, Purl 2" I had to explain that is was an abbreviation for yarn over, not "yo" as a word. Still cracks me up though. Love you stuff.

Maria said...

I want one of each! They're WAY too cute! If that's what happens when you mix Nyquil with cartooning, then maybe I should send you a case of Nyquil!!!
XOXOXOX
Maria

hillary said...

I love it! You are so talented - with and without NyQuil

Anonymous said...

My dear Franklin, you are, at times, such a GUY!

Cheryl said...

Boy I can't wait to see the one for PSSO!!

David said...

Now THAT is something I'd want on a t-shirt.

Nelly Olsen said...

How 'bout cartooning and Jack Daniels?

Cortster said...

Thanks, Franklin. I needed that.

Mug and shirt, please.

Teri said...

Hilarious, thanks for sharing!

Pamela said...

hahahaha ha!

Carol said...

~snort~ I would buy that if you put it up in the Cafe! Love it!

pamela wynne said...

I have never worn a knitting-themed garment or used a knitting-themed coffee mug, but THIS could change my snooty ways. :)

Kathleen said...

Thank you - I don't even want to guess how long it will be before I stop laughing.

maniacalmultitasker said...

awwww, Franklin!
I would so love a T or Mug in this!
pretty please???

Bevin said...

I wish you would publish that as a pendant to the K 2 Tog. I would love both to be framed prints in my bathroom. Perfect spot for toilet humor and kitschy mushy knitting sheep to hang out.

Barb B. said...

Dear Frankin
I would like to order 5 of your P2tog. mugs. I find all my knitting buddies have warped and twisted funny bones (maybe because they spin?) I also want a couple of T-shirts. Please ship them to Canada with a value under $20 so I don't have to dish out to the Customs Dudes.
Yours sincerly
Barb B.
PS I think they are better without the horns....gives more to think about.
And the 'yo' as YO, Dude, would also be great.

john said...

Hey, this gives me an idea.

Anonymous said...

If you make a decal, I will send you Nyquil, w/the vicodin already mixed in.

Ok. If you make a mug with the 2 sheepies, I will buy more than one mug.

Please! Just in time for the holidays! Please make that one a mug! So many knitters. I have so little imagination when it comes to buying presents.

A book! A Dolores book! YES! GAT!!(guy arm thing)

Plaidley said...

**chortle snort!** Niiiiiice. What do they do for sl 1, k2, psso?

I can see a big butch truck with one of the sheep p***ing on the Red Heart label in the back window. Some may think Dolores, but she has an image to uphold now that she's considering campaigning for prez.

somebunnysloveDOTcom said...

I am SO glad I did not see this entry at work yesterday. After gagging my loud guffaws, the muggles would have hauled me off to fired-land!!
=:8

Anonymous said...

Bevin, a framed print for the bathroom? Genius! Me, too, Franklin, pretty please?

Ceallach said...

Nice!

Hey Franklin, can you send Dolores over to set all my balls of sock yarn straight?....One's gone missing and its partner is on the needles and I need it badly to finish the second sock.

TheAmpuT said...

That is hilarious. Sounds like it wont ever make it to the shop, which is too bad, because I'd wear it...but thanks for at least sharing it here.

EUGEN K BEUGLER said...

Someone just sent me a copy of the F. Habit cartoon about the spiders and Barbara Walker. Priceless. I would certainly like to have a clear copy of this. Possible? Eugen

Amy Lane said...

*shock* I knew it!
