    ^ That's so wordlessly endearing.

    Edit: my girlfriend says it's probably the Knitting Terrorists. Obviously.

    today I saw a punk wearing tights, running up a street whilst attempting to dribble with a basketball (and not very well), with a concentrated and slightly worried/self concious look on his face. No-one even took a second glance.

    Haha, this is very true.

    The knitting fad is kinda so 2009 anyway.

    It's not that cool really.

    My girlfriend knits, but she does it to be warm, not cool.

    But was she knitting things around lamp posts?

    No.

    Because she had her wits about her.

    THe problem (or maybe the good thing?) with knitting is that it has that fucked up learning curve which isn't so much a curve as it is a sudden cliff face.

    Knitting a scarf is fairly easy, but then anything else after that (like a jersey) is really really difficult.

    Yeah, she (my girlfriend, I mean) makes jumpers, really good ones that fit and have complicated patterns on them.

    I think she is actually just a witch.
