    Is it possible that a pattern (or plan, or blueprint, or whatever knitters need to reproduce something) could be posted, so our aggregate lusts might be placated by the knitty ones in our respective lives?

    I would prefer to see a kitten dressed as MODOK.

    Wow, Knitty-cat. Amazing work. His face, fists, too-tight shorts, toes, everything…perfect!

    The ever-lovin’, blue-eyed, tiny-toed, Thing! It would be really easy to knit the Invisible Woman.

    I wonder if you could modify that design to knit a Beast out of blue chenille or eyelash yarn?

    That’s brilliant. If only I could knit.

    Would have been much, much easier to crochet it. Yay crochet!

    I collect the Thing. This is the coolest one yet!

    Thank you all so much for your kind interest in my knitted version of the Thing. (Yes, it is knitted, not crocheted. The textured body and limbs are done in seed stitch. But it would certainly look very rocky and Thing-like if done in crochet, and would be simpler to make.)

    For those interested in reproducing him, I am working on a pattern for his construction (not an exact duplicate, but as accurate as I can remember of what I did), and will publish it as soon as I can finish it to http://www.knittycat.vox.com – check in a week or so.

    Again, my thanks for your interest. :o)

    Look again — it IS crochet, except for his shorts.

    Put a Dr. Doom helmet on a kitten, set it loose to knead The Thing, record video, melt Internet.

    So this is what members of the Yancy Street Gang cuddle to get to sleep at night?

    I never thought the Thing could be so cuddly!

    Isn’t the past tense of “knit” also “knit”?

    Nevermind me, just checked and both are correct!
