I have been swamped with work and other responsibilities. I have gotten a little work in on a sweater, a pair of socks and some mittens, but progress has been slow. Tonight I had an epiphany. It occurred while reading a bedtime story to my DD. I had bought the particular book on my nook, so I had not browsed the whole thing prior to purchase. The villain was revealed to be a knitting granny who wields naughty knitting needles. My DD turned to me and said. "You love to knit." I am not quite sure if this indicated a capacity for evil doing. I have always been told that I am a bad influence. Just after putting my DD to bed, it dawned on me that my plans for world domination and my knitting obsession did not have to be mutually exclusive. My crustacean army could wield knitting needles. If all fails the book paints gives knitting an element of danger that could be used to recruit others to the darkside and take up the needles. Thank God for the creative arts. The source of tonight's inspiration was Kung Pow Chicken 1. Let's Get Cracking by Cyndi Marko.
