Frankenstein on the Rampage!
I can't stop laughing. I had the idea for this hat/yarn/marketing project weeks ago. It came to me while I was having a Shiatsu massage. Seems I get my best ideas either while in the shower, or while having a Shiatsu. Must be something about feeling relaxed and letting my mind wander.
In my mind, I could picture this acid green yarn with deep blue/purple contrasts. I could see it knitted up into a hat, and of course I would call it Frankenstein. Next thing, I saw these skull beads for sale at etsy, and today it all came together. The yarn, the hat (finished about an hour ago), the beads, the description. I have to share it here because, for some reason, I can't stop laughing. It just strikes me funny.
You can check out the full listing at etsy, if you want to see all the pix etc. But here is a snippet of the description:
Frankenstein has lost his favorite knitted hat. You know, the one that went perfectly with his acid green complexion and Johnny-Cash-Black Hair. He's pretty grumpy and I heard he was on the rampage looking for it. If he comes beating down my door for it, I'll be ready. Will you?
Oh, and by the way, Frankenstein's hat is the first totally finished item I've knitted in aeons.
