I’m sort of a genious. (And not at all modest.)

Hello friend,

So, I’ve just finished my two little knitted tattoo guns.  They’re SO CUTE!!!  I think they quailfy me as a JEENYUS!

I want to make more, but I’ll do those for me when I have more time… These two, as I mentioned in a previous post, are for my brutha, Nick Matovich (http://www.whatsa-matovich-you.com) who is in town this week doing a guest spot at Five Fathoms, and for Dustin at Five Fathoms who is rad and has a great shop (http://www.fivefathoms.net) and they are made in trade for the work Nick’s giving me tomorrow after work.\

Oh, and did I mention: YIKES!!! It’s been a while…

I’m super happy with how they turned out since it’s been such a long time since I’ve had to actually LOOK at a tattoo machine. Yes, all those hours doing sterilisation actually served a purpose in my life and now seem strangely relevant.

Anywho, goodnight for now. I’ll probably post again tomorrow night with pics of my new tattoo, if I’m not too much of a vegetable and if I remember to charge the batteries in my camera.  I want a picture of Nick tattooing with my knitting.  It’s a beautiful circle, really.  Me, interpretting Nick’s art form through mine; Nick likewise interpreting mine through his…

Knit or Die!

knitified, out.

I’ll think about it… 😉 I’ll have my people call your people. And by that I mean that you should expect to hear from the knitified* fairy (in some form) soon(ish).
We’ll be in touch, Kristin… heh heh.
Woolfully yours,

I’ve been exposed. You better knit me a new hat! Ha ha.
In the meantime, there’s a small mention about your show in Friday’s paper (back end of a story on Amber)… And when you, or the knit fairy, want to do something more, you know where to find me.
Thanks knitified*,
