Thank you for the suggestions!  However, I would like to politely ignore them.
I'm afraid that spats wouldn't be recognized as spats - especially if they're knitted.  They also probably wouldn't fit very snugly - and snugliness is key. 
As for the bookcover, It'd be a bit too complicated - and again with the unrecongnizability. 

What I like so much about the ankle/leg warmer idea is the graffiti essence it gives - it's defiant to spray paint your gang name in a tunnel, just as it's defiant to give Mark Twain some really hip ankle warmers - that's where the humor comes in.  I also want the subtlety of aiming for his more out-of-the-way ankles - they probably won't bother anyone, but people will laugh when they see them.

I just picked out some nice acrylic remnants from my stash - pink, yellow, lime green...
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Social Stigma of Public Display of Knit-fection on: October 06, 2008 12:29:41 PM
Two things about knitting in public really bother me:

One is my face.  When I'm really focused, my jaw drops forward and I look extremely homo-habilis. 

Two is the fishing for compliments feeling.  Public for me means "at school" or "before/after practice":  I've always been surrounded by teenagers who have always seemed to be impressed by the fact that I was knitting.  As I got older, and more simple (more shy, and not wanting to attract too much attention), I began to dread the idea of knitting in public.  If I didn't get annoyed by people talking to me about it, I sure as hell would start assuming people thought I was only doing it so publicly for the compliments.  I'm paranoid in most other areas, too.

I'm sixteen, but I don't like to consider myself very teenagerly.  How pretentious of me. 
Am I the youngest here?

Wow...I posted this knit graffiti idea over two months ago and I finally got it done today. Yay!

I've been racking my brain for a nice knitted graffiti project - something beyond pipes or poles.  One day  I was describing the phenomenon of knitted graffiti to my dad in the car on the way home from NYC, and he mentioned the Mark Twain statue located across from a Borders store in town.  Genius!  Here's a picture.

From what I can tell from the photo (which I take no credit for), and from sitting next to good ol' Twain in real life, the only free attackable areas are his ankles.  Ankle warmers it is!

They will have stripes and neat colors and I hope to get this done some time over Columbus day weekend and I will post updates.  I'm excited!

UPDATE 10/11
Tonight's the big night!  I finished the pieces, and am going downtown with some friends tonight, so I'll have the darkness to my advantage.  Here they are.


UPDATE 10/13
Okay guys, okay.  I still have the balls to do this...but the time?  Not so much.
I'm afraid I won't get a chance until Saturday at the earliest...Sad

Be they somewhat sciencey, you can easily find knitted sexual organs amok all across the internet.  They've been done to death, in my opinion. 
Here is the famous digestive system, with something the author describes as a preliminary pattern which I haven't actually looked into yet.

I just got back from seeing the Superhero fashion exhibit at the Metropolitan in New York -variations one everyone's favorite superhero images..  This totally belongs there.

My parents have their wedding invitation framed in a cool oval-shaped gold frame - pretty simple, but there are pressed and mounted flowers in a neat symmetrical pattern framed along with it.  That might be a nice thing to try.
