There are knitters in my living room…

My roommates are both knitters. And I don’t mean, “Ever now and then they knit a scarf and maybe some mittens” knitters. I mean knitters, which means mittens and gloves and sweater vests and baby clothes all the time.

Get your nerd on – literally! These scarves are a fantastic idea, and patterns for Mercury, Bromine, Iron and Plutonium are available!
