a knit marvin is on my list of things to do. i am really excited your pattern looks easy enough for me to follow....i'm not to good with patterns. hmm. the only green yarn i have is a dark green. i guess this means i get to go buy new yarn too!

life, don't talk to me about life.

Aww!  I wish I could knit...  And that I could implant Alan Rickman's voice in it.

That's so awesome! I'm definitely making one because I just happen to have the right colors in scrap yarn (yay!). I'm still waiting for someone to make the entire yarn Heart of Gold scene from the movie  Smiley
