Randomness and a New Venture

My friend sent me this link today. I think it was supposed to be a joke but I think its great. Camels are awesome. Not as great as alpacas but I like them to. I do think it’s a little funny that they have a whole reproductive center in Dubai for camels. I didn’t realize they needed reproductive centers. I’m going to have to look into this. Enough of the randomness.

Let night Carl and I were talking to our friend Tom who's a graphic designer about this idea we had. We came up with a few fun ideas for knitting related shirts and other garments. So were currently brainstorm ideas for slogans and images for the shirts. We thought with his help he could maybe take a few drawings and rough sketches and turn it into something cool. He also knows a few people who do screen printing which might be cool. I know it can be reasonably expensive but maybe if the iron-on varieties catch on we can move to screen printed t-shirts. I thought I could sell them through and advertise on the blog and maybe ravelry. If any one has some fun ideas or maybe was dying to have a shirt that said ______ let me know maybe we can come up with something cool you all would like. I think it would be a fun idea. Its also nice to get Carl interested in the whole knitting thing. I'm really excited about this new venture. I will keep you all posted.

Have a great weekend everyone! I head out to Atlantic City tomorrow night (for some reason, still not sure why we're going) so I am going to write down my ideas and thoughts while I'm away and post them when I get back sunday. I'm trying to keep up with the whole posting all of November. I've been banned from knitting in public this weekend so you will probably hear a little rant about that later.

Actually, screen printing is generally cheaper per shirt than heat to mention way more comfortable.

really? that's good to know. its strange though since every screen
printed shirt I've bought has been more expensive than any regular
shirt so I just assumed...hmm...maybe I was just overcharged. Thanks and I agree with you they do feel much nicer.
