If you've been a Dedicated Knitter for a certain amount of time, you've probably fallen victim to the Thunderbolt Syndrome at some point. You know what I mean... when you're cruising along with your WIP(s), really quite content, and you stumble on something while casually surfing the Interwebs on your lunch break and WHAM! You find something that, for whatever reason - cuteness factor, season-appropriateness, kickass technique, whatever - you're suddenly overcome with the urge to cast on for Right-The-Hell-Now. Total Thunderbolt moment. You've been struck, and you might as well just give in to it, because if you don't, that unfulfilled desire will just keep festering and will eventually eat you up from the inside out until you're just a whimpering, weird mockery of the human condition (OK, maybe that's just me).
Turns out the Thunderbolt doesn't just happen with knitting or crochet. It can happen with anything that's makeable (that might not be a real word). It happened to me last week, when I stumbled upon the cutest, most knitter-appropriate treat EVER, and I knew I had to make them. There just wasn't any choice in the matter.
Don't believe me? Tell me then: could you have resisted????
And as if that weren't enough to get you rushing off to the grocery store to make your very own sheep cupcakes, they've got MARSHMALLOW JUNK IN THEIR TRUNKS!!!!
Happy Knitting, Everyone!
