I saw patterns of knit mittens in the past,
The making of which could not have been fast.
Owls and moose or a glorious vista
Or, in modern times, the face of Batista.
I especially liked a feasting crow,
Fish bones at his feet in melting snow.
Perfect genius that warms your hands
While keeping your eye on your long-term plans.
As I looked closer, I noticed a thing,
It’s made of pixels, just with string!
You could make Link jump around on your paw
Or Pikachu and Charizard sleeping in straw.
A Minecraft mountain and a lone creeper,
A Dovahkiin hat, yeah, that’s a keeper.
It’s the same principle just many years apart
Very different people, but almost matching art.
I’m gonna learn how to knit all of these
To make socks so cute they’ll make you sneeze.
I think that if I learn to knit at some point, I will get lost in the world of amazing patterns on the Internet and never get anything done. Just googling pixel art brings up so many beautiful images that it takes strong force of will to not be distracted for the rest of the day, as I did already a couple of times.
