I wish I had more time before the election to knit one of these. Of course, I could still do it to wear for the next four (eight?!) years while he's in office.

This is just beautiful.

1. Your drawing is amazing.
2. Your knitting is amazing.

Seriously, this is so cool.

You could try dyeing yarn. Find a natural fiber, get some Wilton dye or Kool Aid, and play.

You could also knit socks in a larger gauge instead of just looking for sock yarn. I made socks with Patons Classic once and they came out fantastic.

The type of needle really won't have an effect on the pattern. I don't know how experienced you are with knitting, but you might check out knittinghelp.com and see the videos there. Sometimes, having a problem with purling can create problems.

They go on the knitting needles. They're used to mark things like repeats in lace patterns.

Another thing is that acrylics don't block easily if at all, which isn't a good quality for garments. Also, acrylic doesn't really breathe all that well. It doesn't wick away moisture like natural fibers tend to do.

I admit to being a "snob" about yarn. I love using wool, but I use Patons merino wool, which isn't exactly the highest quality. But, it's affordable and natural fiber. I do, however, adore Caron Simply Soft. It has great drape, lovely color, and is amazingly soft.

Is there a way to seal the leak with duct tape? I know it's not the perfect solution, but maybe?
