I did take the joke beyond the kernel of inspiration, but that “kernel” was actually inspired by my childhood…
Books: “Just let me finish this chapter!”
Games Outside: “Just one more game!”
Video Games: “just one more level!” or “But this is a high score!”
etc. etc. etc. etc.
it was fun taking the instructions for knitting and try to pare it down into one panel. “go ‘yo’” was my favorite.
Although someone wrote me, I forgot who, who tried to do the stitch according to my instructions and it came out looking like a triangular crepe.
When I wrote this, my girlfriend of the time had just taken up knitting rather enthusiastically. I did learn a few basic stitches myself even.
I realized there was some very fun territory to cover with knitting. :)
