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.

There is another little digital book that I found by chance but I'm not sure how child appropriate it might be. It is called Hilda Hopkins, Murder, She Knit by Vivienne Fagan. It is in Kindle format. I use it with the Kindle App. I'm not sure if a Kindle App works on a Nook. Anyway, I'm not even halfway finished with it, but it is about an older woman who is murdering men who have rented a room from her. She is on the run from the police, but knitted a doll of each man she did in. There is nothing gory or anything so far, but as I recall your daughter is still fairly young.

My DD loved it and asked about others in the series.
