Sneak preview: Campaign


In the grand tradition of flying by the seat of one’s pants, which is how I operate, here’s a sneak peek at a new design that I’m working on.

There are several changes that need to be made and some research that needs to be done on a related academic topic, but the prototype didn’t turn out half bad! I decided to do this a couple of days ago for my super Democrat friend’s birthday (which is today) so I dropped everything else to finish it. It’s just not ready for gifting, I’m sad to say.

Onto the next version! That one should be super duper and ready just in time for door-to-door campaigns in your district! Not to mention cheap…I tried to find colors and quantities I liked/needed and came up empty at my various LYS’s. After much hand wringing, I bit the bullet and went with Caron Simply Soft, a ubiquitous acrylic found in pretty much any Michael’s or JoAnn’s. I swore I’d never go back to 100% acrylic, but it cost me all of $10-15 to make this puppy, so I guess you could consider it “fiscally responsible.” If politicians can get away with a few flip-flops, I think I should, too.

Buddy wants you to vote blue.

    Hi Kate!

    I LOVE THIS! If I had time I’d knit it for every Dem I know, since many of them will be going door to door this fall. Hurry up and publish the design – It could be the IT-thing this fall.

    Of course you might want to make an elephant too. But that’s up to you. :-)


    PS I treated myself to your heart pattern. Haven’t cast on yet. Will probably be a birthday or Christmas present for my nieces.
