Dear readers, meet ‘Manda Whitney, whom I call Manpans! I met Manpans about two years ago and we became creative partners in a joint venture called weTangent. She’s a huge geek and we share a love in adventure games, Densha Otoko, and teasing Manpans. Since our inception we’ve written a number of sketches together, wrote a musical, appear in a weekly podcast, and do a weekly video series called Dining & Dating.
She is one of the founding members of the Princess Bride Knitting Circle, which I still haven’t blogged about, but I will!
I’ve never been much of a knitter. For me, knitting, much like science, has always seemed like sorcery. The idea of taking a ball of yarn and turning it into some fantastical piece of garment or geeky toy simply perplexed me.
She’s not someone who thinks herself as a geek, but she grew up reading science fiction and fantasy! Sadly, she was bullied a bit out of it as she explains in her blog.
Anyway, she is one of the founding members of the Princess Bride Knitting Circle, which I haven’t blogged about yet, but I will!
I am neither a geek, nor a guy, and half the time when I play around with yarn, I use a crochet hook rather than knitting needles, so I’m not entirely sure if I should really be writing here on Errol’s blog. After all, this little space of the interwebs is called Geek Guy Knitting! But, Errol asked me to write a post for his blog and, well… I couldn’t say no. I love all things yarn. I love talking about knitting and crocheting. I love all the finished objects that come from twisting colourful string into a series of orderly knots.
