Pullover, creep.

 :-[  Aww thank you.

Darn! <see what I did there?> I was going to submit the jumper as an Advent Calendar entry but I see it got it's on thread <gah! I did it again, sorry>

Thanks for the great knitting puns and lovely feedback - I'm so happy to see it received in a positive way.

Sorry, Rackle. I'll send you a photo of my big red face to use as an alternate calendar entry; say it's Rudolph's nose, or something.

No worries, @Frank.   I submitted an alternative pick which includes the knitted helmet too. All is good

I for one welcome our new jumper overlord. 

It needles me that all the puns had been taken before I got here, but maybe if I think hard I can still stitch one together.  It's a bit of a knotty problem.

I'm sure the knitted overload can take a little gentle ribbing, but you might have to guage his reaction first to minimise tension. 

Warning, I frequent on a nerdy knitting forums and have a metric shedload of knitting/yarn craft puns to trundle your way  :lol:
