  4. Heather says:

    You know you could *EASILY* retire with the profits of knitting a few sweaters and going to a trekkie convention…excellent post!

  5. Terri Lynn says:

    Beam me up, Scotty!

  6. Jenn says:

    If you accidentally shrink the sweater in the wash, do you have a Kling-on?

  7. JenMuse says:

    HA!!!!!! I so love it!

    Having shown it to a single, male co-worker, his response: “I don’t care if it finds me a wife. I’m not wearing that thing!”


  9. Lladnar says:

    Star Trek knits leave one hot and sweaty it seems.
    Maybe he realizes the guy in the red “shirt” always gets it first.

  10. Damnit Jim! I’m a doctor not a knitwear designer!

  11. Dana says:

    Tim is smiling….so care free….so happy the Captain finally let him go on an away team……this is his big chance! So to ensure making the best impression possible, he puts on the hand knit made from homespun tribble pelts in the most eye catching federation approved colorway available.
    What he failed to remember is that no one in the red shirt has ever come back alive.

    Rest In Peace Tim

    This is wonderful! But red is such a dangerous color on Star Trek, so do you have it in Dr. McCoy blue? — Bjo

  14. Jenn says:

    I wonder if other patterns in this set would be Knit Your Own Tribble.

    I know, I know, someone is going to tell me it’s already been done…

  15. K.C. says:

    Maybe someone can knit him some regulation boots. Those loafers aren’t cutting it!

  16. Ãœhltje says:

    Congratulations with the webby award. You totally deserve it.

  17. xianra says:

    I don’t care…this will put my geek cred through the roof. I MUST HAVE THIS!

  18. DeanB says:

    I liked your restraint — you realized that the picture spoke for itself and you hardly had to add anything.

  19. so….where do we find the instructions?

  20. Natalie says:

    I kind of want one too.

  21. Nightfly says:

    Jenn – I think that the lady on the right, in the banner on the top of the page, has already knitted herself several tribbles. She sold them at a craft table at the flea market, and they were no tribble at all…

  22. Bill Compton says:

    Hi Jim. Photos i received. Thanks

  23. Eva says:

    Just wanted to let you know that I laughed out loud when I read your comment on the Yarn Harlot’s post today. Pre-historic cave painting indeed! Very, very true.

  24. Raven says:

    Where’s the pattern for that? I must have it!

  25. Jackie says:

    I made something similar for my brother, a physics teacher and rabid Star Trek fan. I used a raglan pattern, and made the swoosh badge out of plastic, so it’s possible this version is classier. I also used Captain Kirk gold, not Drop Dead Red.

  26. Stringy Blog Model says:

    I guess you have to get rid of tribbles SOMEHOW… I mean, how else do they get those so-disposable red uniforms?

  27. Mary Chimenti says:

    How do I get this pattern???????

  28. Angie says:

    I laughed so hard I think I woke the kids!

  29. chibimethos says:

    I. Must. Have. This. ROTFLMAO V/

  30. Cori says:

    It’s worse than that, it’s knit Jim!
