So I'm thinking about creating some fictional caricatures of myself and other knitters for use in my blog (knittingman.wordpress.com). I've got two in mind already.
There's a mountain man/hippie tree hugger who discovered knitting for no better reason than he had to do something with those sheep. He's a bit of a hill billy, relatively uneducated and a bit coarse. He probably couldn't tell the difference between Merino and Lincoln, but he doesn't care. It's all wool to him.
Then there's the knitting snob. He's got a gorgeous condo in downtown Boulder, CO with soaring views of the flatirons. He won't touch synthetics and his living room is more fiber studio than hang out space.
Blue Faced Leicester is a bit too course for him. A merino/silk blend is adequate but Paco-vicuna is what he really craves.
I might even have a strange little homeless character, gathering whatever yarn he can find and stashing it under bridges.
Any thoughts? What about other characters? I would LOVE to write about my "interactions" with these funny little people.
