Announcing the ‘You and I Have Begun to Knit’ Competition!
(Or, as I have begun secretly to call it, the ‘Ultimate Hannigram Knit-Off Grudge Match of Destiny.’ Don’t ask.)
Hello, all! Because @oftempestsandteacups and I have been having difficulties with writer’s block for a little while, we decided to try something else– and because we both happen to be knitters and utterly ridiculous people, this is what resulted.
The premise is this: Beginning on the 17th, we will both be knitting something
- small enough to knit in a week’s time
- that we think Will would give Hannibal, or vice versa
- based on an existing picture or pattern, and altered in some way to reflect the aesthetic of the show
- (or as close to that as we can get– who can tell with knitters? We’re insane.)
On the 24th we will each present our finished products to the Fannibal community at large, and our lovely impartial judges shall decide which one of us is superior in every way.
The loser shall be led in chains through the streets of Rome in a triumphal parade, immortalised in their humiliation… and will write a short fic for the winner incorporating the winning piece.
We haven’t quite got the parameters by which we will be judged hammered out, but one of our judges will be the wonderful @sofancydancy, whose impeccable taste and infallible wisdom is well-established.
Vae victis! [Woe to the vanquished!]
