ACW Episode 87 – Watch out! I knit!

I recently bought a pair of size 19 knitting needles and HOLY COW are those things big. They’re about as long as my forearms and nearly as big around. I was joking with Mich the other night about how I could use them for kobudo (Okinawan weapons, which I do as part of my karate training). Then I decided to see if I actually could use them in a kata. Guess what? Those size 19 needles work just fine for sai and tanbo kate! I can’t wait to take them to karate class and show my sensei what I can do with them ;D

In other news, I’ve posted the “Fear Me” t-shirts for sale on I have both women’s fit and uni-sex shirts available. All profits from the sales of these t-shirts go to, the charity supported by the Colbert Report and the March To Keep Fear Alive. I will be at the march with my t-shirt, devil horns, and demon-winged backpack, so if you’re there too, keep an eye out for me. Until then, buy a “Fear Me” t-shirt for yourself or for that strong, smart, scary woman in your life, or donate directly to The money goes to help classrooms in need.

  1. Cartoon is up! Look what I can do with knitting needles –

  2. @Cynical_Woman I would love to see the afghan you would make with those katas πŸ˜‰ Good morning!

  3. @PauletteJaxton I think I would be fighting Afghans with those katas!

  4. @PauletteJaxton Seriously, I think I may bring the needles to weapons class today πŸ˜‰

  5. Yeah, well I was the one talking about sharpening those kobudo for knitting purposes ^_~

  6. Mich,

    Sharpened needles would be no good for actual knitting though. They’d tear up the yarn!

  7. @Cynical_Woman This is brilliant!! Osu!

  8. @kicknknit Glad you got a “kick” out of it πŸ˜‰ HiiiiiiiiiiYAH!
