Here at Princess Animal HQ, we are well-rounded individuals. We refuse to be objectified as just sexy, sexy knitting objects! We won’t knit for your pleasure! We knit for ours! Okay, and maybe some other people’s.
Herein are some of our other interests. And, um, maybe how they always lead to knitting.
Sarah!: You may not know this, but Sarah is an actual, real archaeologist. Like Indiana Jones. Except for REALS.
What ties into archaeology? Well, there’s the first sock, of course, and then there’s Hwaet!
Kathryn!: Kathryn is a lady of many talents, including EXTREME CRAFTING, singing (she sings in a choir) and a love of all things fantasy.
To escape from the real world, Kathryn turns to Tiny Owl Knits’ “Woodland Knitting,” specifically these fantastical fairy wings:
Kathy!: While having many a trivial interest, for the purposes of this post, Kathy has chosen her love of MUHDUH. And who better represents that than the master himself?
And it turns out there’s a brand new book we’ve got called Hitch, with knitting patterns inspired by fillems of Alfred Hitchcock. Therefore, Kathy chooses the Eleven Hundred Dollar sweater, so named because Lisa from Rear Window boasts about her dress being a steal at eleven hundred dollars.
There you have it. Archeology. Faeries (that’s right, I said “faeries” not even fairies). And murder. Well-rounded individuals indeed.
What about you? How do your interests pertain to knitting? Elucidate in the comments. Special points awarded for midieval folk dancing and monkey knife fights.
