Knitting Ninja

I burst out laughing when I opened this on Christmas morning – my manga obsessed 15 year old created this for me as a gift. She also made her father a t-shirt with an image of a samurai, and baked her heart out for every member of the family.

I’ve also posted a close up on my flickr stream. Should I put the kid to work so that we have a knitting ninja calendar in 2013?

    Yes!!!! I would so buy one of those – even pay to get it shipped all the way to NZ!

    Yes! And give her some of your line of yarn … maybe it’ll get incorporated into the artwork.

    Very amusing. We have a page from a graphic novel framed in our house, courtesy of my daughter. Similar import, but a bit more serious. I love this humorous take.

    Definitely! but be forewarned: at that age, I pressed my daughters into service making miniloaves for holiday gifts, and have forever been scolded at any holiday timenabout the “banana bread sweatshop”!
