Who in the world is Mr. A?

If we’re basing this on votes, 64% of you seem to choose based on hair compatibility and likeness to anime. Well, you guys are right. Here’s a more anime-esque photo from our trip to Iceland in 2009.

Jökulsárlón, Iceland

It might be February, but no it was not that cold in Iceland. He’s overdressed. And in case you were wondering what  sort of product he uses to get his hair to stand up like that, there is no product. It just does that.

So the winner of the contest is Kerrie! She wins two skeins of Socktopus Sokkusu yarn which is currently only available at The Loopy Ewe in the US, L’OisiveThé in Paris, and at the Knit Nation marketplace in London this weekend. I snagged three skeins when I visited the Socktopus studio yesterday: two for our lucky winner and one for myself. I was too distracted in the studio to take photos of the prize yarn, but I will do so tomorrow. Here’s what I was looking at:

Not only was I surrounded by pretty yarns everywhere, but the view was of a lovely canal. And what was going by?

Let’s take a closer look…

That’s right, it says “Pirate Viscount” and “Pirate Club” on that boat. Does that make it a genuine pirate ship? That is pretty cool.

After a day of inhaling yarn fumes, we headed out to the V&A for a bit of culture.

Unfortunately photos were not allowed, but the clothing certainly did not disappoint.

    He looks even more like an anime character in that snowsuit. That was the trip where you posted the pic of you in your undies, wasn’t it? hahaha I love the pirate boat! That is cool.

  2. I’ll definately be popping in to the V&A on Saturday after Knit Nation. It’s my faviourite museum, always has been – even after 2 years studying for a Museums Masters didn’t put me off. So looking forward to the weekend!
