How to Stay on Knitting Message During a Heatwave

If you'd like to proclaim your love of or attitude toward knitting and it's too damn hot out right now to wear anything you've knitted, you can always do it by wearing a message t-shirt. This one's from Zazzle.

If you have a secondary interest, such as all things pirate, you can combine the two by wearing this t-shirt. From Zazzle.

If you're more rocker knitter than pirate knitter, this shirt might be more your style. From Kaboodle.

I love Art Nouveau, so this one from Zazzle is right up my alley. If you have a favourite knitting-themed artwork, you can always grab the image off the net and have a t-shirt made that will suit you to a... T.

Once the apocalypse comes, who do you think will be coming to us and begging for a stash-made garment? From Zazzle.

You may have been told that the devil has work for idle hands. What you weren't told was that you might actually be doing that work already. From Zazzle.

Sometimes, but not often, and even then only slightly. From Zazzle.

I've always liked this shirt from Craftster. Of course knitting takes balls, the more the better!

This is for the more stoic knitter. Because, at least in my experience, there is indeed crying in knitting. From Zazzle.

And this is for a knitter's non-knitting husband, who has more sweaters than he can ever wear and needs to know that there's a club for him too. From Zazzle.

"Future Knitter" onesies. Because it's never too early to begin on the brainwashing education of a knitter. From Craftster.

If none of these shirts appeal, there are probably hundreds more on the internet (Zazzle alone has 23 pages of knitting-themed t-shirts for sale) and there's nothing to stop you from having your own favourite slogan or knitting image custom-printed on a t-shirt. I find custom print t-shirts can be even better than pre-made, because you can find or create exactly the image or slogan you want and put it on a t-shirt in your preferred colour and cut. It may be a little more trouble, but it usually costs about the same. If you've made your own sassy knitter's t-shirt, feel free to link to it in the comments!

Coming up: My review of Interweave's The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits 2013 is scheduled to post tomorrow morning!
