  • Knitting Superheros

    As I have mentioned before, I love knitting/crocheting/yarn memorabilia. I came across these images some time ago and I thought they were funny. I love the juxtaposition of the superhero knitting. It reminds me of Popeye and his spinach. What superhero does knitting or crocheting bring out in you?

    After a brief moment of panic, I gathered myself together to ask her, "What do you mean?"
