Dot Matrix

You remember the old dot matrix printers, right?

Of course you do. If you don't, then take a stroll down to my parents' office, where they still actually have one in use! It's a relic from a bygone era, still zipping along with noisy abandon.

At any rate, despite having had the flu and a raging sinus infection in the past 3 weeks, I've managed to find a little bit of time and energy to knit. To be honest, I think it's one of the things that's been keeping me sane. I already wish I'd brought more/different yarn, but some of my dear Ravelry friends are working on that for me, so I really can't complain!

But the dot matrix printer. The sweater I'm knitting has a few things in common with ye olde dot matrix. First of all, it has sections where the knitting actually kind of resembles dot matrix printing, and secondly, it has some of these guys on it. And they're from the same era and resemble dot matrix printing :)

I take no credit for the awesomeness of the space aliens-- I used a chart that lissuet over on Ravelry created-- but I am going to have one super fly old-school gaming sweater in a few days! And don't worry, I'll put some pictures up then.

You were worrying, weren't you?

Can't comment for all your fans, but I was worrying.
Love Dad :)

Let me know if you need more yarn sent to you, and I can help! I can't imagine living far away from my knitting supplies!!
