I’ve got to show you something. It’s so, so, so, cool (it feels wrong for a 34 year old to use the word “cool”, but that’s really the only way to describe it).
It all started with a print I bought from from Stephanie, the Head Hooker and mastermind behind Obey Crochet and the super creative & funny crochet related drawings. She is so extremely talented I really wanted to support her. It’s one thing to read her blog, like a drawing on her Facebook page and mention her in one of my blogposts, but that’s not money in her pocket. So I bought a print that I could totally relate you: Will Hook For Yarn, because I will.
The print will be framed to hang somewhere in our house but that’s not good enough for me. I spend 8 hours a day at work, so how could I enjoy my Obey Crochet print at work? Oh I know – have the print transferred onto a mug!!!
Stephanie agreed that I could do this with my print, so I scanned the image and used Printster to have it printed on both sides of a plain white mug. I think having it on both sides is key – I see the drawing when I pick up my mug, but so do everyone that walks past my desk. Spreading my hook & yarn obsession as far as possible.
Behold, the tea drinking vessle of a desperate hooker.

I think your blog is gorgeous! I would love to interview you on my blog; Boocoos Blogthingy at http://boocoos.blogspot.com. Please visit and consider my request. Boo
Oooh wow! Such a great honour! I’m off to your blog NOW!
I found Obey Crochet through your blog and I too am totally hooked. The mug is terrific. Thanks for introducing me to an extremely talented (and cool!) artist and blogger. As for the cool word – I know what you mean at 45 it feels awkward, but sometimes you just have to go with what fits!
Glad I could introduce you to ObeyCrochet. She’s way cool! Innit? (Mind as well do the whole gangsta speak).
Just found your Blog, and I LOVE it!!! Andrea x
Aaah, thanks Andrea. By the way, how did you find my blog?
Super cute! I’ve seen a lot of her Obey Crochet pictures on products at Cafepress.com and told my hubby to get me some for Christmas.
It is not awkward for 30 somethings and older, we originated cool!!
Love that mug, are they still available for purchase?
I didn’t purchase the mug as such. I only purchased a print, which will still be available (just contact Stephanie) and then I had the mug made myself using Printster – there’s a link to them in the post.
May every mug of tea inspire you to go wool hunting. ;-0
