Like that banner waving patriotically in the sea breeze there? It was custom made by my good friends at No-Bid, Inc., purveyors of $65 cases of Coke, monogrammed hand towels, and (semi) armored vehicles! My good friend (the) Dick will be more than happy to hook you right up with one. Give him a holler at 1-800-SHADOWGOV.
Well! How fetching am I in this jumpsuit, eh? Pardon while I adjust my codpiece- occupational hazard... There, that's all better. Now, let me tell you about how proud I am of the latest accomplishment of the brave men and women of Fricknits against the anti-knitter sentiment that seeks to destroy everything we stand for. They hate our freedom. They do! So we must seek them out with the help of a brave coalition of the knitting.
And friends, I am pleased to announce that the coalition boasts two new members today. Here I have copies of messages sent from two new Friends of Fricknits in response to recent blog posts, gifts of Peace Fleece, and lendings of manifestos by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. I believe the evidence speaks for itself.
An email from A, former part-time knitter, now fully obsessed: I think I'm on the brink of a knitting addiction and have you to blame. I've spent the last 48 hours thinking of (just about) nothing else -looking through books, blogs, websites etc. And the crap part is that I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy the via mala #16 for the union square poncho and it looks like it's been discontinued. I'm frantic (I realize irrational too).
Ah, poor girl. It's a tough initiation, but freedom never came cheaply, did it? And you can all testify to the fact that it is in no way irrational to become attached to discontinued yarn, right? Maybe I can have (the) Dick dig some up for her- he knows people.
Then, an email from S, the aforementioned fisherman. A very valuable recruit not only because of his gender (the coalition needs more males, dammit), but also because he provides valuable crossover obsession information: i did some knitting website/blog research & would like to find more cool ones. let me know, because i'll have to lurk around on it, never revealing my identity, like some weird, reclusive, stalking fisherman, back from sea, full of drunken lust for unknown e-knitters.
Any takers, friends?
