Cute and yet a little creepy. Good shirt to go a-yarnbombing in.

Perfect little cheery tune to go with this shirt:

can you just see the needles moving up and down in tune to the song?

This genuinely freaks me out. But I like it all the more because of it. O_O;; Can't see wearing it as a t-shirt, but I would plaster that on my wall to remind me to stay strong in the face of ... really, really scary self-knitting cat yarn monsters. Ohgodwhy.

Very creepy idea .. how did the poor cat get into this situation? More importantly, how does it get out? Does it need to spend its entire life knitting itself? What if it stops?

That's the cat's pyjamas and it's body all rolled into one. Always glad to see Alex print here.

Disturbingly cute...but there's no way I could get this for any of my knitting friends, because they'd take one look at it and say "That's not knitting. The needles are all wrong."

Sarcasm makes the person who uses it look ugly.
Hyperbole makes the person who uses it look taller.

I am traumatized. I cannot unsee this design. Gah! I never want to knit nor look at my cat again.

That's where I am.... I like the idea, and would totally get it as a project bag, but... that's not how you yarn! If you held your knitting needles like that, everything would fall off. Not to mention that there aren't nearly enough stitches on the needles for the size critter....

That is both fantastic and creepy. I think it's the eyes that do it. The creep part.

So given that cats like to play with yarn, does that mean this knitty can play with himself? Er, wait, that I'm not sure that came out right.

Also come on, lighten up, complaining about the knitting needles, and yarn, and stitch count being wrong...It's only a silly t-shirt/totebag design. Everyone can look at that and recognize what it's trying to convey: a knitted kitty. The subject itself can't be taken seriously so why would it be so horrible if the cat (who doesn't have fingers anyway) isn't knitting exactly so. I knit and crochet and I'd buy it if the eyes didn't burn into my soul. At least the good people at woot didn't mix it up and call it crochet kitty.

"All the Knitty Kats are belong to us." <--yes, the depth of my dorkiness extends way beyond my obsession with yarn (and cats)

Trippy! Has kitty been hitting the catnip too hard?

I'm actually a big knitter, and the accuracy doesn't bother me. I mean if you want to "knit-pick", is that pattern knittable? Some sort of entrelac/friendship bracelet hybrid?

But at a glance, the joke is clear. That's how you knit in cartoons, which this is. In for a tote!

If the knitty sees the yarn, won't she just pull herself apart?

A project he never finishes- The temptation to pull the string is too much!

Super cool idea. Reminds me of something that should be a deleted scene from Alice in Wonderland-

Wow! So my mom has 3 cats, knits obsessively and the shirt is vaguely reminiscent of her Grateful Dead rainbow dancing bears on black Tshirt. Total WIN.

I'm also a big knitter and the inaccuracy doesn't bother me. I got a shirt, if I had the funds I'd also get a tote!

I also knit and feel the same way.

Yeay for Alex prints!

I love this!

And, fun fact, knitting was actually done this way in the 1800s, I think. I know that you were supposed to hold it that way so that it looked like ... you were being more productive? I can't remember very well, but I do know that knitting was actually done like this for many years.

I totally want this as a yarn tote!

Reminds me a little bit of the calico cat and gingham dog from The Duel by Eugene Field.

Exactly. As an avid and probably pathological lover of both cats AND knitting, I want to want this really bad, but instead... I'm frightened.

Who would have known that Woot, the land of the adorably-drawn cats, could put forth such a thing?

oh good, someone else said this first.
Yes -- the "pencil hold" is a totally valid way to hold one's needles, but isn't very common these days.. hah..
It was that it was more "proper" to have your palms facing downward, etc.

If you think this cat's got crazed eyes, just wait till you see me when someone has interrupted my stitch count.

I think that's what's going on here - it's why the needles are pointed down and the stitches are dropped. The Knitty was startled and is PISSED about it.

Am I the only one that noticed that the cat isn't even holding the needle on the right... his paw is behind it. /shrug

You said it, TT! I knit, I have many cats, and I absolutely love this design. It was the colors on the black that got my attention first (Oooo! Shiney!), but the subject matter convinced me to buy a shirt and totes.

It looks to me like Knitty let go of the needle to start counting stitches. I wish I had a claw to use to count with, as I do it a lot. Lace weight 300 stitch cast-ons would be so much more pleasant.

Clearly the creepy stare is due to the cat using its telekinetic powers to control that floating needle...

The Knitty stopped to scratch an itch, nothing more.

Love this. Though the closest my kitties ever came to knitting was chasing my needles while I was trying to knit.

Close enough.
