What You Are Bidding On:
A one-of-a-kind, hand-knitted, horizontal Scarf of Evil. It's going to be ugly, have no discernible pattern, and will be made up of random bits of yarn left over from the various projects Dina's made since she began knitting. This scarf will use yarn of every type and weight, and there is GUARANTEED EVIL IN EVERY STITCH. This item is in the process of being made especially for this auction and is unique in every sense of the word. Plus, you know…it's evil. Made by the Gothic Goddess of the Evil League of Evil Writers herself. What more could you ask for in evil accoutrements?

H'oaky peeps. Knitting is very seriously worth hell of alot more than $20/$30 bucks. I am a knitter and for this very ugly scarf I think i'll have to double the bid. $60ReplyDelete
I may be slightly in love with you for this, Shannon! KNITTERS UNITE! And, because of your wonderful comment and generosity and respect for the craft, I'm going to unravel a swatch of cashmere I washed and blocked to see how the yarn behaved and knit it into this scarf. Just because of your awesome. Thanks for the bid!Delete

My Bid $70...ReplyDelete
I'll make it $100 if I can get a hat too????Delete
If you want an Ugly Hat to match the Ugly Scarf, Shannon, I'm willing to make that deal. It will take me a little longer than the 2/15 deadline for the auction ending to finish, but you're a knitter so you understand these things. I will throw in a hat for your $100 bid!Delete
you got it hunny $100 fer the ugly scarf.Delete
Query: Seems to me knitting and writing would compete fer hand time...so do you knit first write later or vice versa...or knit and record you story to be typed later by said hubby?
I usually write first, but occasionally I just need to let things wander around in my head and that's where knitting really helps. I also trade myself words for stitches. (Otherwise I'd just knit and never write, because I do love my needles.) I write 1000 words, I get to knit 1000 stitches! When you have 200 stitches cast on for something (like a sweater or Ugly Scarf), 1000 goes pretty quickly! So many writers I know also knit or crochet. It's another aspect of being a creative type, I guess!Delete
Thank you for your response. I guess I don't write because I also draw and paint along with the knitting and the reading and a fulltime job as a female pipefitter. Thanks to wonderful people like you and the world's you create I get to just sit back and enjoyvthe rideReplyDelete
You have triumphed over evil!Delete
