Do you not like Shetland ponies? I'm thinking of the derogatory spelling.

I'd love to be able to knit something so lovely, I'm not sure I'd want a pony wearing it. Thanks for the video. It goes great with morning coffee.

Here's a summary round-up reply:

There's a Venn Diagram on the net that basically says if you find yourself in a roomful of people who wear long sleeved sweaters in summer and share needles with each other you're either in the local crack house or the local knitting club!

The sweaters (well cardigans, as they button up down the front) were commisioned by VisitScotland to highlight the two best known exports from the Shetlands ie ponies and knitwear. So they were only worn for the shooting of the campaign and apart from a little dust round the 'cuffs' came out of it ok.

I glad you picked up on that, but I've just spent the last two and a half months working with a woman who gets irritated when anyone writes 'bare with' instead of 'bear with'. It doesn't help that one of the other companies in the same building has that spelling mistake on the side of its delivery van.

@ crackhouse or knitting club comment.

I noticed the the misspelling of bear when I first read the original post, I do pick up on things like that but I tend to see my own mistakes after someone points them out or much later when I read it again. I wasn't being knit picky about spelling, I was enjoying playing with words when I commented. I didn't think I was being offensive but if so, now people will know I didn't mean to be. If I offended anyone, and I'm thinking mostly of David, I'm sorry. And, Julie, I'm not feeling like you're picking on me either!

Ponies~! Hmm, I think that's normal. I do something slightly different, though. Even before I pick up my needles, I sketch out a design for a garment. After that sketch, another idea pops up and another. Lol, then I become overly excited about each garment that I don't know which to start on.

I've got three garment ideas and I'm having issues deciding on which to knit first. The first one is a panda hoodie with ears and a pouch, the second one is a hooded cloak for a steampunk convention in September, and the last one is a nerdy Pokemon inspired sweater dress.

I guess I could always start on that sweater dress since I have eight skeins of purple yarn.

The practical part of me says start on the hooded clock first as you have a deadline date for when the steampunk convention takes place.
