Have you met ThinkGeek? I read the most wonderful blog post of theirs about no less than 12 pages of "cease and desist"...do go and read it, I'll pop the kettle on while you're away and get out the biscuits.
I'm really very jealous. I've only ever had one cease and desist, and mine was a mere 2 pages long. (For crimes against Dr Who, if you must know. I knitted an adipose.)
So...having read all about unicorn meat, it was obvious what I needed to knit.
Pattern? No problem. Unicorns are remarkably similar to meerkats...except they're a different shape. I couldn't get to the wool shop right away so I knitted a prototype in white wool, pretty pleased with how he turned out.
Unicorn meat, though, is sparkly. Sparkly wool? ARGH! No sparkly wool. Apparently there is "no call for it". Clearly I *needed* sparkly wool, how can unicorn meat be sparkly unless unicorns are sparkly?
No problem, I thought - I'll use glue and glitter.
Parents of small children may smirk at this point. I have glitter everywhere. I will probably always have glitter everywhere. I am going to be adding "with free glitter" to the descriptions of everything in my shops.
But isn't he sparkly?
If you're in need of canned unicorn meat, head straight for ThinkGeek
If you're in need of a knitted unicorn (with or without glitter!) head to Niftyknits at Zibbet!
