So you know those "Keep Calm and Carry On" posters that are popping up everywhere? The history behind the posters is really interesting. The parodies are ridiculously awesome - if I ever become a professor with my own office, I might just want to hang this just to scare students (muah ha ha...I have a really bad sense of humor sometimes):
That should pretty much set the record straight.
Anywhooo, there are TONS of parodies out there - the easiest thing to do is go to Etsy and type "Keep Calm and Carry On prints" - this is what you end up with. KeepCalmShop has some of the best ones out there.
While browsing through Ravelry for some pattern ideas (as if I do not have 300+ things I want to knit already - dead serious) I saw a thread in the forums about these posters, but the Ravelry edition so to speak:So fun! I love how they incorporated knitting/crochet notions into the design of the crown. I am totally going to pre-order the knit version (as I cannot crochet to save my life, except for a chain that is used in a particular kind of cast-on for knitting). I also plan to get one or two others in the future: Keep Calm and Travel On, and Keep Calm and Ride On.
