For the knitter who blogs, and vice versa.

The hand-knit laptop privacy-slash-headwarmer, um, garment? H/t Akabini, who tells us she only has 118 different kinds of yarn in her stash, poor girl.

And by the way, if you have a Boyfriend With Moods who occasionally does not feel social, I'm sorry, you cannot knit this for him. It totally counts for the curse.


  1. that's funny! i need one like a potato sack with little feet that ties at the top of my head and eye holes for certain moods!

    I never heard of this fucking sweater curse shit! That's fucking spooky!

  3. Wow. A BSL-3 lab sweater!
    Never heard of the sweater curse either; looked up the link; under "proposed mechanisms" noticed glaring omission of what, to me, is obvious stereotypical-guy-thinking possible mechanism:
    BTW, the 'proposed' before 'mechanism' should be clue enough;
    Anyway, knitting = lets get married and have babies now = beepbeeep, cloud of dust, wile e. coyote left scratching head.....

  4. Should have been done in a lighter weight fiber and/or a lacier design. It would be hard to keep a laptop cool in that thing (and I wish I'd known about the sweater curse back I was younger; it might have helped terminate a couple disastrous relationships faster).
