2006-07-31: Not Escape Phrase
I have the knitting bug again.
These instructions are loosly adapted from the weird KNUCKS in the most recent issue of Knitty.
My alterations to the pattern are for the best. Terrifying middle fingers of death are much better than night-of-the-hunter-wannabe yarn tattoos.
Be glad I didn't do my original idea for this comic, which didn't have instructions, it just had Tsam counting the stitches for the whole thing.
This comic is in the storyline:
