The Prince and The Purl

hill-hill-hill:

Thank you, Sam.

( Seriously, I want a Cap belly warmer. )

SCREAMING. PLEASE.

Steve shows up to an Avengers meeting in August wearing a red white and blue scarf that hangs down nearly to his knees, with little pieces of yarn sticking out anywhere there’s a color change. When Tony stares, Steve shrugs. “Bucky hasn’t figured out how to weave in ends yet,” he says, toying with one of the errant pieces. “Pretty good though, right?” 

Tony says nothing. Tony’s not sure there’s anything to say, except, maybe, that knitting needles sound pretty fucking dangerous in the hands of the Winter Soldier. 

In September, Natasha pulls her tablet out of a black knit pouch with red edging; in October, Sam’s wearing a pair of thick grey fingerless gloves, little black wings adorning the tops. Clint comes home one day November wearing deep purple arm warmers, and a few days later Bruce walks by wearing the exact same ones in green. By December, Thor’s storing Mjolnir in a little silver knitted sack, and when Steve and Bucky show up for the Christmas party in matching handmade sweaters, holding hands and generally looking much more like something out of an adorable Hallmark commercial than Tony would’ve guessed upon meeting Barnes six months ago, he has to admit it: he’s hurt. 

"I am not hurt," he hisses at Pepper, when she finds him sulking. "I am — confused. And! Cold! If Barnes is going to knit things for the entire team then, I mean, whatever, I don’t care. I’m just saying, it’s not exactly fair, is it? Everyone getting something and me—” 

"Tony," Pepper interrupts, giving him her gentlest exasperated eyeroll, "Bucky left something for us in the foyer." 

It’s a blanket, as it turns out, red and gold striped. Pepper wraps around her shoulders immediately and refuses to give it back, even when Tony tugs her into a kiss and tries to use the distraction to steal it off her. It looks awesome, though, and it feels pretty damn comfortable for the, like, eight seconds Tony gets his hands on it before Pepper sails away, still wearing it around her shoulders. Huh.

Tony sidles up to Steve at the next Avengers meeting. “Hey,” Tony says, “you were right: your boy’s pretty good with a needle. You think he could make a hat that says ‘War Machine Rox,’ spelled with an X? I need a good birthday present for Rhodey.”

Steve beams at him. 

I think I just died of adorableness

Dear Knitters of Tumblr: I am writing something relating to the knitting life and I want to ask you one question: Why do you knit?

I knit because it genuinely makes me happy. I really don’t knit for myself at all either. I have made a handful of hats and my Doctor Who scarf. The majority of my knitting has been presents for family and friends.

I also started knitting because of charity. Every year I knit wearable moustaches for Movember and sell them to raise money for Cancer research.

I knit because I like making people happy. Knitting makes me happy and sharing that with the ones I love is even better.

My wife going through my yarn stash...

Wife: Did you buy this yarn for something?

Me: Yes.

Me: I don't know what though.

Wife: That's literally what I just asked you!

I have no orange buttons for the cardigan… Guess I’ll stop at Michaels tomorrow after work.

BTW…

The same cat that was laying on my pattern while I was knitting keeps trying to sleep on my drying sweaters. Her belly is now very damp…

Once the baby’s been born and the APGAR has been administered, many doctors congratulate the new parents and head over to the next delivery room. But Dr. Robert Sansonetti sticks around to give his newest patient a special gift. For the last four years, the obstetrician from Scarborough, ME, has knit a cap for every baby he’s delivered. A solo practitioner for more than 20 years, Sansonetti started his side project after a Christmas present sparked his interest in the craft. 

How cute is it that this doctor is knitting hats for the babies he delivers?

This would be me if I was an obstetrician.

rougedlandscapes asked: So, it seems as though you've been knitting the cutest things lately for tiny bodies. That's adorable. I'm starting a bunch of things for tiny bodies soon, so thanks for the encouragement!

Yea it’s my weakness really. I don’t knit things for anyone over the age of 12…

That’s why from here on out 2014 will be the year of selfish knitting lol.
