Too Cute!

I have no hot knitting news to share with you today, but I do have a fun acquisition to show you. For some time now I've been wanting a knitting themed t-shirt. I'm not much for t-shirts with slogans or splashy pictures or cartoons, so it was no easy task to find something that fit the bill. Until I found I this, that is!

I just love this t-shirt! From a distance it looks like a nice, quiet little argyle design of some sort, but when you get up close you can see that it's a yarn and needle motif in an argyle style. It quietly and respectfully speaks: "I am a knitter." No shouting. No in-your-face screaming message. Just a gentle and mature word to those listening: "I knit."

I bought this silkscreened t-shirt from Etsy seller RedPaperRecord. She has one more listed in her shop at the moment and it's a Small, but I'd wager a guess that if you find this t-shirt to be a Must Have as I did, and you send her a message, she can probably whip one up for you. (Don't quote me on that! Just my guess.)

One word of caution. It's an American Apparel T-shirt and they run pretty small so you'll want to think about going at least one size larger than your usual size. I didn't think about this before buying and just picked up a Medium. As you can see in the headless photo above, it does fit, but if I were just a hair bigger or the t-shirt were just a hair smaller, we wouldn't be getting along nearly so well.

That's all the news for today. Tune in Monday for another rousing round of customer project photos!

Everyone have a great weekend!

Great shirt! You're so right about those American Apparel tees. I have to buy them in large, and I am definitely not a large girl. (That's what I tell myself, anyway.) Unfortunately, the shirts shrink a fair amount in the first wash too.

Hiya! Love the shirt.
I was wondering. . . . .if it would be possible. . . .to get the deepest forest colourway in the classic merino. . . sock yarn. . .
I'm knitting my sockapalooza socks in the Spring Breeze colourway and have fallen in love with it. Too bad I can't keep them. I'll send you photos once they're done. =) Thanks!
